First I'd hope to go to our swim club and take a long dip on this sticky day. But the pool was closed due to "impending severe inclement weather." That also scuttled my plans to walk the dog, to take a nice long walk to get my FitBit steps in. Then it started raining. Hard.
So I figured I'd go swimming at the gym. I have a new bathing suit and I adore swimming. I went down to the pool and glanced at it on the way to the women's locker room. Every lane was empty. The water was clear and flat, inviting me in from the humidity.
"The pool's closed," one of the lifeguards in the locker room told me. "It's thundering outside."
Yeah, it is.
