My Pool Is Frozen!!

This morning, I peaked out our kitchen window to look out in the yard and see that the pool water was frozen! I just had to get some pictures... and touch it. *giggles*

It was so beautiful and looked quite thick:

So, I wanted to see if it could hold me:

Then, the terrible unexpected happened:The ice broke! I was struggling and struggling. The water was absolutely freezing and I couldn't feel anything. After my long hard struggle, I finally managed to... pull my boots out o' the frozen water. LOL =D Did I have you scared there for a minute? No, I didn't fall in and no, I didn't stand on the ice. I simply placed my feet on it (of course, I was wearing mud boots) and the ice broke, my feet splashing in the water and spraying me. It was really cold and I thought my boots might freeze! Anyway, I'm sorry. I just wanted to put some thrill in this post and see if I could get you excited. :) I hope it wasn't too harsh of me. ^_^

I took this video of me taking a large chunk of ice and throwing it in the center of the pool. It's not very long, but... enjoy. ;)

Dear Eldarwen,
How big is your pool?
That's pretty cool about it being frozen!

You had me for a minute there, Eldarwen! I was like Man! What was she thinking!?!?!?! But I'm glad you didn't! =)

Hi Eldarwen!

Wow! Our pond is frozen, too! Oh, the wonders of winter! :)

I just wanted to let you know that I have awarded you! Go to my blog to check it out!


Eldarwen said...

Thanks! ^_^

Thank you! I know, me too. I was so awesome! =D

It's 30ft. by 30ft.... I'm pretty sure. :) Mom, is that correct? lol :D
I know how tall it is: 5ft. But there's only about... 4ft of water because you're not supposed to fill it up to the tippy-top. :)

Thanks! It was sooo much fun! ^_^ I find pleasure in.... interesting things, huh?

*evil laugh* my plan worked! *rubs hands together* lol =D jk. Yeah, that would be really... un-smart to stand on it. It was only 2 inches thick or so.

The pool is 30 ft in diameter because it's a round pool. It is 5feet tall, but the water is about 4-6 inches less than that.

I had to comment, Eldarwen, so you'd know I'm still paying attention.

I love you,
