Getting to Know Seattle: New Year’s Day at Green Lake

While we’re on the topic of wintry weather, I happened to be at Green Lake on New Year’s day just at the time a group of hardy swimmers were about to do a polar plunge. Green Lake is cold even in the summer; serious swimmers who cross the lake usually wear wetsuits. The air temps here were in the mid-30’s, and I have no idea how cold the lake water is. But in the hardy crew went.  Happy New Year celebrations take many forms. 🙂
