    I know it's crazy! The temp in our pool has dropped about 10 degrees just today.

    It's about 40 degrees outside right now in Houston. The lowest on record was 39 back in 1971.

    It has been in the mid to upper 20s here in east tn at night...I opened my pool 2 week ends back and now I am running my pump to keep my solar panels warm to prevent freezing. Pool dropped from 70 to 35. Well at least chlorine use is down.

    Ahh, y'all should come out to california - it's been gorgeous out here! On second thought, it's kinda crowded. And we don't all speak english. And we frown on all sorts of recreational activities. And our power/gas/NG costs are amazingly high. Maybe y'all oughta stay away. And maybe take a few people out of Cali while you're at it?

    But the weather is awesome!

    drogers !!

    We had flurries on Easter, after a gorgeous week pushing 80. If you average the 80 with the snow, you get the usual temps for this area in April, 60-70.

    All the flowering trees are confused, or have lost their blooms... no cherries for lots of folks this year...

    Thanks for the non-invite drogers lol


    We had flurries today Ugh! Our poor Magnolia blooms are all brown and dead . About the only good thing, that I can see from all this, is that the stinky Bradford Pear blooms are also starting to die early. Those trees are all over our city, used as parkway trees. Boy do they smell bad!

    Does anyone remember back about 15-20 years ago when the scientist were saying we were headed for another ice age.

    Happy swiming all

    Yes, it's funny how they go from one extreme to another. I'm not smart enough to know which side is correct. I prefer a moderate approach with some common sense mixed in. For my part, I try to make smart, eco-friendly decisions when I am able to do so.

    Either way, I think lot more pressure needs to be put on China and some of their insane practices before we start banning lawnmower use in the afternoons (they tried to get that passed here in Houston.)
