Long Beach, NY - The City by the Sea - Polar Bear Plunge Revisited

Superbowl Sunday, February 5th, 2017

 

In the tri-state area today, we're having a snowstorm. It's a big one - 12-18 inches. It was only yesterday that unseasonable mild temperatures were up in the low 60's. It felt glorious.

 

These crazy weather patterns have made for an interesting winter.

 

Right before that was Long Beach's annual 18th Polar Bear Plunge. Air and water temps were close at around 35 degrees and as fellow friend and blogger, Jon Zolsky, noted "35F is freaking cold, pretty much as cold as the water gets before turning to ice."

 

It was my first time attending and it was a wonderful event. There was so much excitement in the air it actually caused this onlooker to graduate from a very adament, "not a chance in this lifetime" to a more optimistic, "well, maybe next year."

 

All for a good cause, the Make a Wish Foundation, recieves hundreds of thousands of dollars from participants and sponsors.

 

From watching young children and elderly frolick in the Atlantic Ocean, the vast majority in bathing suit, you would be tempted to believe it is not that hard to do but it's actually extremely challenging which prompted the hashtag #Icantfeelmylegs.

 

Kudos to all the weekend warriors. Who knows? Maybe I'll join you someday.
