UPDATE: Assistant Manager of the GR pool, Andy Sammon, told Baristanet that the closure was a result of several employees — a few lifeguards and the pool manager, Jodi Schnack — developing symptoms of heat exhaustion and needing to leave. As of 4:00 p.m., the pool has re-opened.
“People haven’t been too happy about us closing, but the management deemed the working conditions to be unsafe,” Sammon told Baristanet. He had no information on the condition of the employees.
The Borough of Glen Ridge just announced that the town pool will be closed today, between 1:00 pm and 4:00 p.m., due to the extreme weather conditions. Are you too hot to swim?

HUH??? Could we get an explanation on this?
Maybe Glen Ridge is not utopia after all. The Montclair pools have extended their hours due to the heat.
Perhaps the pool water evaporated?
REALLY?!!! I thought someone had hacked the pool’s email account.
We were planning on going to the pool because of the heat. Huh
This is hilarious.
Okay, maybe it’s not so hilarious after all. I hope the lifeguards are feeling better.
With all the lawyers in GR, prolly a good idea to be play it safe.
lovely, now that the original story is gone, replaced with an update, some of the comments appear extremly awkward.
