We have a municipal pool here in beautiful San Angelo Texas, which opens tomorrow for the season. The hours are 11am-6pm on Saturdays, 1-6pm on Sundays, and 1-7pm the rest of the week (for open swim, which is all I’d care about for Alex). The pool closes for the season on the 13th of August. So, it’s open 10 weeks of the year. In west Texas. Where it got to 100 degrees in April. Where we use the air conditioning well into October most years. WTF?
What do you expect for 3 bucks per day, right? So, what about the local swim & racquet club? It costs over 500 bucks for membership the first year (400 the following years – what a bargain for you). Their pool opened today (a day earlier!), and stays open until the 4th of September (three more weeks!). For five hundred bucks, I want to be able to swim on Christmas freakin’ Day, folks. At least the swim club pool is open 10-9 five days a week, and 1-9 on Sunday (like many things in West Texas, it’s inexplicably closed on Mondays).
The only way to use a pool here for the period when someone would reasonably want a pool to beat the heat is to own your own. I live in bizarro-world.
