We may still be living under gray clouds in much of the Northern Hemisphere, but warmer weather is not far off. The spring equinox just passed, and while the ancients may have needed to rely on stonehenge to help figure that out, thankfully we have the calendar app, the weather app and any number of smart home devices to tell us where the earth happens to be along its yearly voyage around the sun. Celebrate the warmer seasons ahead with these over-the-top pool floaties you need for your pool parties and days at the beach.
