Hi, Bob. Sorry, but you really do have a problem. Wax is not a good thing to put on floors. Waxes are so slippery that it is very easy to have falls. Yes, I have seen it and come close a couple of times myself. The other problem is that you wax may have silicones. These will make it impossible to finish corectly without a problem called "fisheye" where a finish will not lay flat but wants to crater. Subsequent coats of anything like varnish (including Poly) will just be worse and no amount of sanding of the finish will cure the problem.
In my judgement, you can try waiting until the summer and washing off the wax with a solvent but this might just drive the silicone into the wood. Your best bet may be to sand the wax off and refinish with a good Poly.
Certainly, get input from others. I know that this is not good news and that you are proud of your floors. Good luck. Henry in MI
