Let’s show off those frozen pool pics with ice and snow. From Texas to Tennessee ... it’s going to be cold this week!

My pool is completely frozen and has a little snow on the deep end. Could get 5 to 12 inches the next few days 😳

Not quite the sort of pics you were likely looking for, but here ya go!

Leaving water in isn't an option up here. See forecast pic. And we've had 10 days below -30ºC already.

No pics of the inside. Only 4-6" of water left in it.

@Jimrahbe New install this winter. The skimmer and returns have been plugged and sealed since I filled it up. Equipment never has been turned on and pipes are dry. I did pour some rv antifreeze in the skimmer and left another half full bottle floating in there.

Mine is starting to get a very thin layer of ice on the surface by the skimmer. Anything I need to worry about?

1st prize goes to the first pic of someone in the pool! Come on all you Polar Bears, show us what you're made of!!

On a serious note, let's send out all the warm karma we can to our pool brothers and sisters who are facing this crazy challenge. I hope you and your pools all survive with no [ch]ill effects!

I will go take a better one in a little bit but here is a sneak peak lol. I took this pic a few days ago to send to my friend in south Louisiana and tried to make the snow the focal point and not the pool. It’s still frozen solid so I’ll get a much better pic later! 🥶
EDIT: Pool is fully “closed” but I do not use a cover.

We have been covered with all sleet so far with snow on the way this afternoon. Temps in single digits and not above freezing until Saturday. 🥶

Or ice skating in the pool ( I am not responsible if you actually try this and drown :) ) but have your spouse start recording after " hold my beer and watch this"

My husband walked across our pool yesterday when he accidentally threw the dog’s ball in it LOL!! Thankfully it held up fine but I told him not to do that ever again hahaha
