Polar Bear Plunge "No Way"

They are showing photos of the local "polar bear" plunge into the Gulf of Mexico and though the water is a little warmer than it normally is due to a warm December (70F) I still say no way and have a shiver. I know other places that have polar plunges where the water is much much colder and the thoughts of it puts me under the covers as I don't see how anyone can do it. Brrr.

I'm with you, Mary. I'll pass on taking a chilling dip, unless I'm wearing a full length wet suit.

@Elizaby Hmm. Well, I would only take that ice cold plunge in a wet suit. No way I'm doing that in my bathing suit during winter.
