My Blood Runs Cold

The water belongs to the Ottawa River. The ice is 2 feet thick.

It's cool place to hang about.
Very, very cool.

He's waiting and watching.
Someone's going to jump.
The water temperature hovers at freezing, and hypothermia begins almost immediately.
Outer extremities being to tingle as soon as they hit the water. Not just the fingers and toes either.
This is not a leisurely swim. This is a Polar Bear Dip.

34 wild and crazy Canadians enjoyed the frigid waters last Saturday in Pembroke
...and the hot tub after the jump.

For their efforts, they received a free lunch. Chile of course.
And the Diabetes Association received over $6000 that the jumpers raised through pledges.
It was awesome!
