BRRRR! The Plunge Is Near!

Well, it's almost time. Tomorrow morning I expect to be at Fort Buenaventura for the North Davis Preparatory Academy 'Freezin' for a Reason Polar Bear Plunge'. (It may be too soon to call this an annual event, since the first one hasn't happened yet, but that's the plan) By this time tomorrow afternoon, I'll probably be in bed covered with about 20 blankets in the hopes of thawing out before church starts on Sunday.

Based on comments by friends, I'm not sure whether the snow that's predicted for tomorrow morning is a good thing or not. On the one hand, I like sunshine, but for it to be a clear sunny day, that means the temps will probabbly stay low. Snow probably means clouds, but it will have to warm up some if it's going to snow.

Hmmmmmmm -- what would be preferable - snowy and cold or sunny and colder?

At least the event organizers say that there will be a place to warm up after the plunge. Maybe I won't even need those 20 blankets by the time we get home.

If you'd still like to sponsor Nolan or me, there's plenty of time.  And we would also appreciate your prayers. About 30 students, teachers, staff and parents are signed up to get in the water. Please pray that the event is a financial success, but just as importantly, pray for the safety of all participants.

Look for pictures in the near future (if I don't drop the camera into the frigid water)
