Today has been an interesting day. Very little sleep due to storms and the dog doesn't care for them. When I did get up my husband had the cover off the pool and was filling it to where it needed to be. Funny thing is This thing sits 50" off the ground so the only thing in there should be leaves and bugs. But NO It is Loaded with Tadpoles. Treated with Algecide to start getting rid of the green. Then proceeded to remove these slimy little critters. I am pretty sure there have been easily 200 in there and that is from what I caught. This happened a few years ago and my youngest child's girlfriend of the time was on a mission to save them. So I let her. She got a 5 gal bucket and got as many of those little critters as she could. I told her I can't possibly get all of them so I have to put the shock in now. She had a blast with that. I thought about her today while I was skimming them out and that I wasn't going to get them to the river. Arm isn't ready for that. I did what I could today and now I have ice on the shoulder. Anyway Pool is open and within 48 hrs. will be blue and ready for you. Come on out We can have Water aerobics in the backyard.
