Ensuring a much cozier near future


Nine people rush past icy puddles down the beach at Spring Canyon 12 hours into 2019 to take a “Coulee Polar Plunge” into Lake Roosevelt. The air temperature was about 33° F. The water temperature measured 42° with a thermometer brought by one of the plungers, but it definitely did not feel warmer. Five sane people, plus two photographers, and a Portuguese water dog also witnessed the “second annual” event, which nearly doubled in size this year. The dog remained dry. From the left, plungers are Sherelle Cleveland, Gwen Hilson, Donna Deckman, Tammy Norris, Susan Duclos, Diana Parish, Julie Friedlander, Bruce First, and (not seen) Tom Farmer. — Scott Hunter photo
