I knew that the pool would be cold during this time of year. I really found out the other day when I came home from work. The huge storm we had a few weeks back blew one of our brush bags into the pool. I found it two days later when Nick was working late. I tried to get it out with a rake and by pulling it up. BUT, since it was FULL of water, the bag kept ripping and it was too hard to lift out. So...I had to go get some shorts on an GET INTO THE FREEZING COLD POOL TO LIFT THE BAG OUT! I had to hop right into a hot shower!!!
