Gypsy Hill pool closed ... pump struck by lightning
The timing of a lightning strike that knocked out Staunton's Gypsy Hill Park pool pump came during some of the hottest days of summer. A storm passing through the area a week ago caused the problem that is now being worked on by contractors.
Meanwhile, steamy residents looking for a way to cool off in the summer heat have a few alternatives. When my children were young, a group of home school moms would meet at various places during the summer which provided swim and friend opportunities for our children, and we moms got to visit as well. Some places we used to go:
- Todd Lake in northwestern Augusta County
- Sherando Lake in southeastern Augusta County
- Goshen Pass in Bath County
- Swimming pool at Natural Chimneys in northwestern Augusta County
Stay cool and enjoy the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer in the Valley....
