    1. Well, not knowing how to swim would be a good reason not to go into a deep pool in cold weather… or ANY time! 😲
      Your 2022 project should be to learn how to swim! Let me know, or blog on it, if you try it!

    1. See other comments about the heated pool! Unheated would be miserable for a quarter mile lap swim!
      I’ve been a Polar Bear once, going into the Atlantic for a “dip” on New Years Day, but everyone was In-And-Out! Water was about 30F but no ice, of course in the ocean salt.

    2. I tried out joining The Polar Bears in Newport, R.I. when I lived there in the late 70s. Every week the ‘real’ Polar Bears go for a swim in the Atlantic Ocean without regard for weather! On New Years Day they always get a bunch of us “carpet-baggers” who join just for the day because the news outlets used to film and report on them every year. The warning was to go In-And-Out, not to linger because of hypothermia. So with about 250 other ‘nuts,’ I went into the Atlantic Ocean on January 1, 1977 with water temp about 30⁰F (-2⁰C)! Took about three hours in a warm tub and by the furnace to feel normal again. 😲

    1. I am SURE the pool is heated! That subdivision used to have a heated winter canopy above the pool as well, one of those pressure-maintained balloon buildings. It is the only pool in the city that was open year-round to members.
But last year some vandals cut a bunch of slashes in it, so I guess they don’t have the repaired topper yet. 🙂
