One of the people I look up to the most in my life is my Mom. On New Year's Day this year she participated in the Polar Bear Dip at a place called Auke Rec. She had some friends agree to make donations to the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation if she followed through.

She did.
It was cold enough for my brother to put on hat.
That's cold!
Don't be fooled by the moving water--it's the ocean and my Dad told me it was 21 degrees
The fresh water was frozen solid.
She's an amazing woman

"She's an amazing woman." Yes she is. And we love her.

Oh, so I see it runs in the family. I remember a Jolly Flat roommate taking a dip in Loch Ness. YOU! :)
