And it's an even bigger joke that they don't let said lifeguards use their judgement as to the thunderstorm risk.
Last week, I got kitted out, went down, only to be told it was closed for a one-hour thunderstorm warning.
Went back after, swam for 15 minutes before being told to get out due to another thunderstorm warning.
It was all blue skies then. As it is now. Yet, our pool just came out of another two-hour thunderstorm closure.
In hindsight, the three years of the pandemic were bliss in one respect. With the pool closed, I forgot all about this madness.
