There are only two things that get me out of the pool....

One would be food - if I'm getting hungry then I'm usually willing to get out. The second thing - which is really the fist - would be THUNDER. And right now I'm inside because of that. We were in the pool early to hopefully avoid the afternoon heat and it was fun for an hour - then I heard the first crack of thunder and said 'bye'.....within 10 minutes of getting out the rain started and I said 'thank you'...we need it badly. At first a nice gentle rain, and then the heavens opened up. I did have a bad connection for a while, but it's fine now even though it is still raining. We have not had rain in over a week and this rain is very welcomed. What's the weather in your neck of the woods? Photo is mine.

Oh too bad you could not stay in a bit longer. Glad you are having something nice to eat. It is hot and sunny here, no sign of any rain Abby.

Today it is cloudy and raining. It's a gentle rain and is getting our plants and grass deeply watered. Plus, it has made it a little cooler around here. It's in the 80's 9instead of the 90's.

All the rain has done is make it more muggy. It is 92 and raining.

Thunder and lightening would definitely get me out of the pool in a hurry. We have cloudy skies and it looks like rain but so far nothing

I think pool is finished for today - now it's just cloudy and I'm not sure if more rain is coming. Enjoy your swim!

No one in their right might would swim when there is a storm.

@AbbyGreenhill People who play golf have been struck on the golf course, holding their golf umbrella! You cannot believe how silly people are to do that.

@JolietJJake - that almost happened once, I was in the pool and Ruby wouldn't get in and kept barking at something - it was a snake...a little one but still a snake. I didn't gt out, but I did go to the opposite end of the pool while my husband fished out the snake.

I would get out for thunder as well. I would probably keep a snack near the pool for the hunger part. It is sunny here but seems cool this morning.

I have a fear of t-storms, so I can hear thunder when it's a long way off.

That is a lovely pool and I would have appreciated one in my garden this summer it's been so hot. However the weather has turned now and it's chilly.

The rain will do a lot of good. You can always go back to the pool later on.

Not sure if we are getting more rain later, right now it stopped but it's grey and foggy too.

Those storms get us moving too @AbbyGreenhill We seem to have weather similar to yours on most days.

Since most weather patterns go west to east and you are east of us....that makes sense.

I think we are on day 16 of temperature in the 90s. The rain helped lower it today.

It's very warm in Michigan, too! But, what do you do to avoid those harmful sun rays? I get pre-cancers, so staying indoors is what works best for this issue. (I remember you from Bubblews!)

I guess I dont worry about them. If I had to stay indoors I'd go crazy.

Hot and humid here, but in the 70s tomorrow. I am not a fan of hot and humid at all.

It's always hot and humid here, but that's to be expected. Right now after the rain it dropped considerably but still humid.
