The pool cover came off at the Howell Swim Club. That means that although the air is between 64 and 75 degrees and the water temp holds steady at 68…the Howells are in the water. Lips blue, goose bump covered, and having a blast! Normal people open pools so they can warm up for a month. Not a chance. We nearly had a summer catastrophe but thankfully all is well with our favorite summer pastime and huge gift in our backyard. Upon removing the winter cover, we found 3 1/2 feet of water gone from the pool. Thanks to the help of a friend we found the leak, patched it up and filled. It is cold but the memories are in full swing even if summer is 3 months away!
