    Sounds like the midwest! :D

    My relatives always melt here in the spring--when we're thankful it's only 90 degrees!

    And I was thankful that it was about 60 degrees when I got up this morning. The first morning in about 7 weeks that I haven't had to turn up the heat!

    Not even close here! Unless you have a heated pool!

    I took the day off yesterday to take advantage of our warm weather to clean the pool. I really detest sticking my arm in the cold water to connect the vacuum--and then being sprayed by the wicked cold water water in the hose while cleaning the filter!

    Pool water temperature was 56 degrees yesterday when I tested and adjusted the chemicals.

    My pool is closed up, covered in about 10 inches of snow, and the water inside is most probably all frozen solid. Even in the Midwest we do have our limits

    The Midwest and East Anglia have a lot in common.

    When we were in Scotland DH & I were on the beach, whilst my hardy Scottish cousins shivered into their thick coats.
