    Yeah huh? It's flippin' 32 degrees here and 23 degrees with the wind chill! :eek: No one wants to swim in THAT!

    It's sunny, but colder than it's been since 2003. Will be nicer by the weekend though when it climbs back to the mid 70's.

    Hmmmmm....makes me wonder...

    If they closed BB in December 2007 on the day we departed WDW? I think it was the 17th. It was only about 35 degrees around 1:00 p.m.

    Wicked cold, in my book! :lol:

    I'd swim in that temperature.

    Bit cold when you first get in but as long as you keep your shoulders under... :lol:

    How cold was it here on Sunday? I was in an outdoor pool Sunday morning. And it was packed.
