The first day of the 2015 ACC Men’s Swimming Championship has been moved up several hours to attempt to avoid inclement weather expected to hit Atlanta later in the day.

The first swim, the 200 medley relay, will begin at 3:00 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, with the 800 free relay beginning at 4:00 PM. The pool will open at 2:00 for spectators, and the facility will close at 5:00 PM.

According to The Weather Channel, forecasts will have the temperature above freezing for most of the day, but there is a 90-100% chance of precipitation from 2PM onward, which could become hazard as temperatures drop toward freezing after 6PM.

Virginia might get hammered over the next few days. Could put a crimp into the CAA Championships.

This happened at SECs once. I think it was 2004 in Athens? It was the second day and they cancelled prelims and turned the 500 free, 100 fly and 100 breast into timed finals.

Still have memories of the winter of 2012 when we got 2 inches of snow, the whole city shut down and I was the only coach who could make it to practice. I snowshoed 30 min to and from the pool and imagined I was Dennis Quaid in “The Day After Tomorrow”.

You lived in Atlanta and owned snowshoes? Desantis = STUD! and / or Desantis = Eagle Scout. I was Troop 212 out of California. You?

Full disclosure: I have never owned snowshoes, nor was I an Eagle Scout (correlation?). Actually, I only made it to Tenderfoot. Greg = FAILURE 🙁
