ROCKWELL, Iowa- The cold weather has not only been affecting local businesses, but also some local outdoor recreation.
Several pools either cancelled swim classes, or didn’t open at all on Wednesday due to the weather.
The Linn Grove swimming pool in Rockwell stayed open for a little while, but closed early because of a lack of visitors. The manager of the pool, Abbie Nielsen, says that she really hopes the weather gets a little better before the holiday, because they will be having a lot of events.
“A couple of weeks ago, during the storms, our slides got struck by lightning, so we had to close down for a while,” Nielsen says. “ We’re trying to keep the pool open as much as possible, since we were closed for a while.”
Nielsen says the water is always 80 degrees.
