For the last few days the Tucson temperatures have been from the low 80′s to the mid-90′s — great for desert! But, everything is not happiness in Tanuri Ridge — at least for some.
Before these cooler temps, the pool temperature was 89 degrees — plenty warm for most people, but a little warm for the “lappers.” But, yesterday the pool water temp was 83, today it’s 80. This is not a problem for the lappers and visiting guests, especially the grand children — they are loving it!
But, you may ask, “Why not turn on the heater used to keep it 85 degrees in the winter?” Good question! The heater broke this past week and needs to be replaced — at a cost of $3,000+. So, the powers-to-be decision not to replace it till next fall. Good decision — if we wait long enough we can save more than enough on our gas bill to pay for a new heater.
On the positive side, the timing of this heater breakdown could be better. Think about it!
Plus, there are the benefits of cold and hot water therapy – used for centuries and some of the benefits they bring include: increased energy, increased circulation, detoxification, and the clearing of negative energy. So, I go into the pool for about five minutes, then the hot tub for five minutes, and keep this up for several times. Wow, it’s refreshing! How lucky can we be? Sometimes it’s so easy to turn a bad situation into a good situation.
When most of the world looks at the above picture, they would give anything to have our pool temp problem. Really, how can it get any better?
