Polar Plunge 2018!

It wasn't as cold as last year, but it was plenty cold enough for me (I'm the wimpy looking person in the polar bear hat, who has already turned around and headed for the shore).  We had a great day for the Chesapeake Climate Action Network's annual "Keep Winter Cold" Polar Plunge!  This group of hardy volunteers raised money to help with local efforts to slow and stop the causes of climate change, such as offshore drilling and fracking pipelines.  The funds also go to support efforts to develop sustainable technologies such as wind and solar.  Great causes all around, but it's also a great chance for creative folks to show off a little:
