There are a few things that confuse me. Why, for example, do we need to start school in August? Why do we not generally have academic periods that end with final exams before the winter break? Why do we use daylight savings time? Why do we start school so early in the morning for teenagers when we know that they are not at their best?
Why do the pools close in August?
On Sunday, we all met at the pool for a quick cool off before celebrating Diana’s birthday. It was horribly hot, one of the hottest days of the year. Deerspring was packed. We realized that our other Deerfield pool, Mitchell Pool, was already closed for the season.
Every year we have some tremendously warm days in September and yet the pools are closed. Deerfield has a major issue with not being able to get anyone to work. Part of that, without a doubt, is clearly the unwillingness to pay a better salary.
It is annoying. You get those extremely hot days and you would like to take a dip and… no outdoor pool open. Deerspring is scheduled to close in a few days.
Sometimes things just don’t make any sense.
