Longtime readers of this blog are aware that the official opening of our pool comes with First Dunk and that event happened today, the earliest date since 2010. The pool has already been open for a couple of weeks -- I am the eternal optimist when it comes to going for a swim -- but today the air temperature was around 80 degrees and the water was at 74. Add to it that I had just been doing yard work and mowing the lawn and I was ready.
Yes, it was a bit brisk and it will probably be a few weeks before anyone else decides to join me, but...
= splash =
...the season has begun!
