Summer Has Arrived!

SummerizingWe started summer-izing the pool a couple weeks ago. That’s just what it sounds like:  the opposite of winterizing.  We brought the pump back from winter storage, set up the heater, dumped in gallons of chlorine, and replaced the winter cover with a solar blanket.  Yesterday the water reached 80 degrees (matching the outdoor temp).  It’s finally warm enough to go swimming!

Even when my shoulders aren’t up to swimming, I can jog laps around the pool – which I did for 90 minutes last night.

    • I’m very glad we got this pool. Unfortunately, my shoulders are acting up again, so crawl stroke is out of the question. I can do sidestroke, though. Even getting in the water and stretching is helpful.
