A week ago you may have though "I want to take a 3-day weekend and spend Friday lounging by the pool." Great idea, but it will have to be indoors today.

The Sioux Falls city pools will all be closed today due to the weather. As I write this at 12:01 P.M. my iPhone says the temperature is 61. It's also gray and cloudy. Not fun for swimming or sun bathing. So the following pools are closed:

  • Drake Springs Family Aquatic Center, 301 South Fairfax Avenue
  • Frank Olson Pool, 4101 East 16th Street
  • Kuehn Park Pool, 2309 Kuehn Park Road
  • Laurel Oak Family Aquatic Center, 3401 East 49th Street
  • McKennan Wading Pool, 1500 South Third Avenue
  • Pioneer Spray Park, East Pine Street/North Jessica Avenue
  • Terrace Park Family Aquatic Center, 1001 West Madison Street

The Midco Aquatic Center is still open today because it has a roof.
