It's not so much getting people into the water in cold weather -- it's getting them to get out.

Have all the pools closed like this before? You see the water park not under refurbishment close a few times during winter, but all the pools?

Doesn't it suck to know the temperature could go up 60 degrees and it would still be cold? Sometimes I wonder why I live here...

it's rareish for cold weather to linger like this. cold nights are not new but not bouncing back during the day is a tad odd.

I'm really surprised by that. We've been there during some very cold weather and the pools never closed.

-5 sounds like a heat wave. It’s -29 where I’m from. That’s why I came to Florida.

You know its cold when the pools are closed. Luckily in FL, the temps should bounce back soon (ish)...
