Red face Water level in winterized pool

Hi, me again with my next stupid question. I've dropped the water level in my inground pool to below the return jets, I've blown the lines and installed the plugs. The water level is now about 12-15 inches below normal. Now I'm in a quandry - do I leave the water level 'as-is' and instal the winter cover or, now that the jets are plugged, do I raise the level part way (to below the skimmer) to reduce the amount of standing water and snow melt on top of the cover?

If it is a solid cover that you pump off during the winter I would raise the level to about 8-10" below coping and if its a mesh cover that drains into pool I would leave it where is.
