When the piles of snow in the parking lot at work were still there in the beginning of April, I was wondering just how long it would be before I would be taking the first dunk of the year in the pool. Adding to the extended time frame was the fact that we had to get a new liner installed; tears had started in two of the corners last year and we were able to keep them relatively small with duct tape, but that was not going to work for a full season.
Said liner was installed about ten days ago and the refilling began. Once that was done, we needed our regular pool service guys to come and hook up the filter, et al, which happened this morning. With the temperature this afternoon in the high 70s and lower overall temps forecast for the rest of the week, I decided it was time for First Dunk. The Temperature Team of thermometers pretty much agreed the water was about 72 degrees, which is warmer than it's been in other years.
= Splash! = The season has begun. Bring on the summer!
