Want to see a bunch of crazy people?
Seriously, though, who jumps into a frozen lake in February in upstate New York? These folks did. Two of them were my 11-year-old son and my brother-in-law Stephen, who has participated in the Polar Plunge for the past fifteen years. Sadly (sarcasm), church duties kept me away from the festivities, but Daniel supported them from the lovely ice-encrusted beach and took a few photos for posterity's sake.
It's for a good cause, of course - the Special Olympics - and my son was so tickled to see the donations coming in on his personal page. For those of you who donated, thank you! For those of you looking to do something, um, "refreshing," there's always next year.
Could've been worse, of course. It could have been today, where the outside temperatures have barely reached one degree Fahrenheit.
