Cold Water Observations

Did you know that Mr. Celsius originally had water freezing at 100, and boiling at 0 ? I watched these ice sheets floating down and rolling over the dam this morning, swiggin' my coffee and waving at people driving by in their toasty warm vehicles on their way to work.
I wonder how much these sheets weigh?  In kilograms of coarse . . . The water is just crystal clear.  I think I could see Walleye Pike schooling in a small pool?
If you'd fall in today . . . you wouldn't last any longer than an experienced "Polar Bear Club" member.  However, your body would be very well preserved.
Ice water is good for drinking on a very hot day - but not real great for swimming.
