Why is it that knowing miracles do actually happen….like making it snow yesterday in Houston, Texas and today in Jackson MS, that I am now thinking of my backyard pool and how I wish it was 85 degrees and I was on my float soaking up the rays. It seems the colder I get the more I wish I lived in Florida beachside. Really, now is the time to start thinking of the improvements you want to make to your pool area so that you will be ready in the late Spring. Ask yourself – is my pool liner in good shape? What about that Turbo Twister slide the kids have been wanting? I guess as I begin to make plans for my pool next summer, I will do the next best thing by passing the time away in my portable hot tub out in my backyard.
