Memorial Day weekend signals the traditional start of summer. That means more than just reaching for white shoes to wear with that flowery dress. It's the first weekend when most pools plan to open for the season. In years past, dreary holiday weekend weather held off the start of the swim season. But, if you believe the weatherman, it looks like there's a good chance you'll be able to suit up the family and hit the water park Saturday or Sunday.
