12 degrees. That's how cold the water was Saturday for the 2014 Polar Bear Plunge. 12 degrees, People! But, 157 plungers were there to jump in it anyway and help raise money for Special Olympics Kentucky. I was going to plunge too . . . but had a change of heart when my friend David Bristow, from Southern Star, offered up an additional $100 to charity if he could push me in. Naturally, I said "Yes!" And the cameras were rolling.
