"Heated Pool" Paradigm

I was booking my hotel for a business trip to central Pennsylvania several weeks ago, when I saw on the hotel's webpage "heated pool".  "Heated Pool"!?!?  Awesome! I thought, and I actually packed a swim suit in anticipation of being able to take a swim in the evenings and weekend that I had to stay there for the extended business trip.  It was 75F in Phoenix as I was packing my suit case.  The fact that it was 15F in State College PA didn't register, or if it did briefly register, I logged it into the "they must have one impressive and capable pool heater!" neural storage location.
There are lots of rabbit tracks in the snow, all around the pool area.  I've not lost my Chicagoian driving instincts, and the Altima rental car handles adequately, but a nice pair of snow boots would have been something good to bring.

Obviously there will be no swimming this trip.  The exercise room has a "True" brand tread mill, elliptical machine, and recumbent bike, along with a tiny series of wimpy "medicine balls" rated from 4 to 12 lbs.  Where's the 40 lbs dumbells, and the weight machines?  Oh well.
