The federal budget cuts are doing more than just delaying flights. It's also affecting some people's ability to cool off this summer.
People on active duty in the military, their families and retirees usually have access to free or low-cost swimming pools and waterparks on military bases. However, many of those pools around the region are taking a hit this summer.
They have shortened hours or closed all together due to the sequestration and resulting spending cuts.
The Navy says it will save nearly $2.5 million by closing some facilities and cutting hours at others.
Most of the money saved is expected to come from spending less on lifeguards.
