2012 01 28 - 6561,6163,6564 - Annapolis - Polar Bear Plunge

AIR TEMP: 50°F / 9°C

WATER TEMP: 40°F / 4.5°C

WIND SPD: S 15 mph / 24 km/h

 

The 16th annual MSP Polar Bear Plunge, benefitting Special Olympics Maryland. Weather was a bit warm for January, but a cool breeze up the shoreline helped remind folk that it was, indeed, winter. A combination of adrenaline (and possibly beer) helped keep participants warm and mobile, with bystanders feeling a touch of cowardice as we quivered at the breeze and lapping waves. The police and security staff were fantastic, with spirits just as high as watchers and plungers alike.
