Because the pool was just finished in November and we could not wait 'til summer
Grace, TOO TRUE!! -- we've had folks go into ~ 40 deg water when the pool was 1/2 filled - just to be able to say "I was the first one in" or "I DID go in the year it was built" :lol:

Reasons to go swimming in Dec...

I live close to the equator... what is 'winter'?

or

I live in Australia - do you think I'd be stupid enough to swim in June?

or

There is no local branch of the Polar Bear Club near me, but I want to 'share' their experience

or

I put my bob-house on too early (for those of you who don't know what a bob-house is - it's a little heated shack on a sled or wheels that you tow out onto a frozen lake to ice fish out of -- you usually tow it out onto the lake with your truck, if the ice isn't thick enough, you end up swimming * and paying a BIG charge to get the truck and bobhouse out of the water-- and a $$$ fine for polluting the water) :)

or

I'm a masochist

or

I've forgotten how it feels to have pneumonia, and it's nice too revisit an old friend :roll:

or

My wife says I'm hard headed and I wanted to prove that even my head isn't hard enough to break 1/4" of ice... but I was wrong :oops:

or

I needed to do my Mikvah -- :wink:

or

I wanted to see if my new polar fleece boxers REALLY work:roll:

or ...


Sean, I can keep this up all night - care to give me a little more direction in which to take this?

(FWIW - I once came up with ~ 350 'Letterman-style' reasons to go to the restaurant I cooked at, all over the course of a weekend, many of them would never make it into the newspaper ad, but some that I thought couldn't, did)

Dave, I LOVE your new heater :whoot:

- To get a different perspective on the hockey game in progress
- Finally no pesky mosquitos
- To wash the salt off my boots
- Oh, you said Fahrenheit, I thought that was Celsius
- Figure skaters in skirts (not sure if that is too risque but you be the judge)
- To repaint the goalie crease

the beach was to crowded.


my supply of 3 bottle of rum and coke so i decided to make ice and pool water.

i went on vacation to hawaii, WHAT YOU EXPECT ME NOT TO SWIM.

the devel made me do it

i wondered why penguins liked it so much

to test and see if fat was really a good way to keep you warm.

nothing good on tv

i though the ice was stronger.

........It's the only time of the year when I have the pool all to my self.

........It is a waste of an installment payment if I don't go in.

....... It is a quick way to sober up from all of the Holiday drinking.
