Re: Thunderstorms - will they ever stop ?

Andy:
"I never could understand people who won't use the pool in the rain. Are you afraid of getting wet? "
Me too - we used to swim in the sea most days in the summer, and the water always felt warmer if it was raining. (North Sea).

Here is why - isn't google wonderful.

My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

Re: Thunderstorms - will they ever stop ?

Andy,

It's nothing to do with getting wet - the pool is just not warm enough for me.
I have swum in the rain, but gentle stuff, but the rain we are getting it is just too damn cool and heavy to be comfortable!  OK, I may be a fair weather swimmer, but why not!

And it's not even been hot enough to need to get in it to cool down yet!

Re: Thunderstorms - will they ever stop ?

It's a bit like tropical storms here. When it rains it floods certain areas of our garden within minutes, but when the sun comes out it's hot. The T & L has been terrific to watch.
As for our pool, it's remained at 24° without the sun to heat it. That's just a bit too chilly for me.

Mogs, it's obviously been warmer with you than us, only 20, and that's the surface ... always colder in it.  But we don't cover it, as usually there's no need, but I would usually have been able to swim by May at the least.  Yes, 24 is only just warm enough!
