One business that's having a rough summer has nothing to do with the economy, and everything to do with the weather.

This summer's cloudy skies and cooler temperatures have less people spending their days at the pool.

Managers at the Aquatic Center in Marietta say their daily average of customers is only about a quarter of last years.

It's having an impact on their staff as well; going from 15 to nine lifeguards at a time.

They say they're hoping for lots of hot sunshine soon.
