The Polar Plunge … Yikes!

Our exchange student Josi Schroder did the Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics on Saturday, along with about 3,700 other thick-skinned zealots. Here’s proof:

There’s Josi in the middle, with Felix Albrecht, also from Germany, and John Schremp, one of the regional coordinators for the exchange program, EF International.

Check out the video of the event on HamptonRoads.com. Gives a nice flavor of the what it was like out there. We’d never been to the Polar Plunge before, so we didn’t know it was such a huge party.

btw, the water temperature was 43 degrees Fahrenheit on Saturday. C-c-c-co-o-olld…. Well, better a young, strong thing like her than me! I was on the beach with a towel and a camera 🙂 And after she changed, we went out for hot soup.

Check out the slide show on the Virginian-Pilot’s site.

    Congratulations on your plunge. Hope you and all stayed warm and didn’t get sick from the cold.
