Perry Welch cools off by leaping into the Thomasville City Pool on a hot June afternoon, as Shane Brisson makes a face at the camera.

According to Cory Tobin, program director at Thomasville Parks and Recreation, the pool must be closed during thunder or lightning, and also closes when precipitation diminishes a clear view of the bottom of the 12-foot end of the pool.
