Would you let your kids go to the pool if it's raining and 67 outside?

It's rain and thunder and 67 degrees here and the daycare wants to take my kids out to the pool because well it's pool day on Fridays and they don't care that it's raining and cold because it is pool day. And they actually said that it is not cold for pool. WTF? Am I crazy? Would you let your kids go to the pool today? I told them if they don't keep my kids inside I am taking them home.
BTW, they are 3 and 2 year old.

  • First if all 67 is way too cold, secondly, uh, rain and thunder=lightning=children could get killed if lightning strikes water! Wow! I'm shocked....shocked that they are risking children's lives and argued the facts with u! Wth? U need to find a new daycare! That would piss me off!
