There’s a silo overlooking the pool at Great Oaks Country Club.
This is the way the pool looked when I got there on Wednesday for the 3:30 adult swim.
And this is the way it looked 20 minutes later, after a roar of thunder and the sound of a lifeguard’s whistle blowing. “Now I know how the kids felt,” I said to another swimmer. These days it’s hard to get an afternoon swim in without a storm cutting it short.
