Looks like all you need now is a little bit of sunshine.  We are getting a lot of rain in NH as well.. and it's been quite a while since we have seen the sun.

Hi, Stan. We are looking forward to this weekend, not necessarily the pool opening, but a three day weekend gives us enough time to get out of town. lol

Hi, Joan - We actually had many sunny days, but mixed with rainstorms and some tornadoes.  Today it was nice in the morning, then we had heavy rainstorm early in the afternoon, then nice again later in the afternoon.  Maybe the pool openings will scare the rain away. lol

Howdy and morning to you Yolanda

Yolanda, folks sure do look forward to being able to go summing! The pool here in Charlestown does not open until med June. I just go down the road and go summing and scuba diving in the Connecticut River.

Have a good one

Hi, Dale!  The temperature is rising though we're still getting rainstorms, just like yesterday.  It's 81 degrees at this moment, so we're ready for the pools to open today even.  Thanks for swimming by!  :)

Yolanda: Our community pool here at Canyon Springs Resort will open Memorial weekend. Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels opened a few weeks back. We have been having lots of boaters visiting Canyon Lake now for a few weeks. Wish we could get some rain, getting ready to go into Phase-2 water restrictions, some folks wells are going dry.

Another 31 Day Challenge down, you're doing great.

Carl, did you guys get some rain yesterday?  We had more early this morning with very strong winds and the sky was green.  It looks like we're getting more this afternoon.  Crazy, crazy weather.

Thank you, I'm barely hanging on... including today's, six more posts!  :)
