cold enough

only a couple of inches in the pool
mostly rain/snow water
AMAZON: Bound by Ice

Throughout the whole winter, it barely got cold enough for the water in the pool to freeze completely solid…except, before it was officially winter. Don’t get me wrong, it got cold, but not that cold.

Now that the weather is improving and spring is just around the corner, the pool will be torn down and a new one put in its place. The old one is, well, old. I bought it in 2011. I think…I can’t find the papers/instructions on it.

It started leaking near the end of the swimming season, and since it was/is so old, we figured just to keep up with it and get a new one in the spring. I had to fill it up with water every couple of days. No big deal, really…

When we normally close the pool down for the winter, we drain it down a few inches, below the hole for the filter intake, add some chemicals and cover it. But, with the leak in it, we didn’t necessarily do all that. Why would I?

That’s about all I have for now!
Hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!!

linked to amazon: Bound by Ice: A True North Pole Survival Story by Sandra Niel Wallace; available on kindle, hardcover, paperback; 192 pages, published by Calkins Creek (September 19, 2017); Bound by Ice follows the journey of George Washington De Long and the crew of the USS Jeannette, who departed San Francisco in the summer of 1879 hoping to find a route to the North Pole. However, in mid-September the ship became locked in ice north of Siberia and drifted for nearly two years before it was crushed by ice and sank. De Long and his men escaped the ship and began a treacherous journey in extreme polar conditions in an attempt to reach civilization. Many—including De Long—did not survive. A riveting true-life adventure, Bound by Ice includes excerpts from De Long’s extensive journals, which were recovered with his body; newspapers from the time; and photos and sketches by the men on the expedition. The title also includes an epilogue, author’s note, bibliography, source notes, and index.” (AMAZON) I am an Amazon Affiliate and may make money with qualified purchases. Thank You!!
