Finally got the pool closed.......

...... well, almost.

Last weekend I had an excuse. It snowed.


I know, I know, I know, I've been procrastinating closing my pool, but I've been mega busy ROTFLMAO , but that all came to an end on Saturday. With Lori prodding me, I started closing the pool.

The weather on Saturday was cold, cold and colder. Okay, it was in the mid-40s, but that's still cold for a pool closing. While I was doing the pool, Lori was baking cookies. Don't they look good?



I wasn't thrilled that I would be spending the day out doors, but I know it had to be done.







I tried to get some sympathy from Lori so I could stop and go inside where it was warm.










I even tried smiling, but no deal. I had to at least finish cleaning the pool before I would be allowed inside to get warm.











The time finally came when it was time to add the winterizing chemicals.

Two of part A and eleven of part 3 and then a few dashes of part M.





Here is the clean, chemical balanced pool.









It was starting to get dark, so I went inside to work on my next project; getting the back door storm door to close. That included replacing the broken door knob/latch/closer thingy on the storm door.













Then the next day, Sunday, Lori helped me get the winter cover on.


PS
Remind me next fall to close the pool before the garden hoses freeze.

Lori is good at more than just making cookies. ;-)

Lime - You are so right.

Next fall, I'll save you a lot of trouble by just reminding you to move some place warmer. ;)
