Not that I'm complaining of course.
Yes, I like teaching swimming but I also like sitting on the mezzanine talking to my co-workers while getting paid for it too. Which would you prefer? Is it bad to hope for storms?
So, it's well over 90 degrees here today, hot and humid, and they're calling for "evening thunderstorms" again. The parents are credited for a class that's missed but they still get annoyed. I decided to look it up to see if it's REALLY necessary for us to get out of the pool and found a few different things. Most people say, "better safe than sorry" but the fact is that there has NEVER been a death reported from lightening striking an indoor pool.
I'll have to mention it at work to see if anyone else has heard anything different. Not that I'm going to try and change it, it's a national YMCA rule after all.
Here's a picture of the pool from last week when we got rained out. These were taken right before we went in for our 5:45 class, you can see the sun shining through the windows.
So, keep your fingers crossed for us tonight...
