Time to close the pool and beginning prepping for winter

Posted By on October 25, 2016


The weather this time of year can be very pleasant for chores outside, but morning and evening chill is definitely hinting that cold weather is around the corner. So it is time to start closing up the pool and prepping the outdoor living furniture for the nastiness of winter. I enjoyed the warmer afternoon in shorts and flip-flops thinking that it might be the last time for 2016 … at least in Cincinnati.

One of the chores that I’ve improved on each year is the cleaning out of the landscape pond behind the house … and for that, a large shopvac is a lifesaver. Just another item to add to the book about "what you should buy when you are young" a good shopvac!
