This post is guaranteed to give you the shivers! Welcome to the Polar Bear Plunge. My fire department friend Wendy told me she was going to do the Polar Bear Plunge again this year. I marked my calendar and arrived just in time to take pictures. The local fire dept and the local police department have a little costume competition every year. Last year the police won with thier "Pig" costumes. This year the award went to the Fire Department. (the police came dressed as Pigs again this year...gotta step it up guys!) Anyway, here are some highlights of the day!
