TalkingHey, you know what.......my pond is really COLD!


pond water is freeeeeeeezzzzzzziiiinnnnggggggly cold this time of year!

I was getting ready to turn the pond filter back on and noticed one of the pvc intake connections had come apart, so I just reached right in.......! Now the pond is 24 inches deep and the pipe lays on the bottom of the pond, so I was pretty much soaked from the shoulder down and to make a long story short, I think I'll just wait till the water gets alittle warmer before I try that again..........

So how was your day

LOL oh my it makes me shiver to even think about you doing that! Brrrrrrrr

The sun has been shining and decieving me all day here today. We are in a bit of a cold snap right now were the nights are below freezing and days in the 40s. But the sun looked so inviting lat this morning so I walked out back in my bare feet and sat on my patio swing. Took all of about maybe 2 minutes of letting the sn shine on my face to realise my feet were freezing..LOL
