Studio III architects’ Hero Wednesday: Extreme Cold Winter Ice Swimming in Siberia

Leave a comment

So the cold snap has passed here in Vermont.  We’ve now had two cold snaps or visits from the “Polar vortex” giving us temps at night of -12, -15, -20…and colder in some places.

And when confronted with what to do with temperatures like this one is at a total loss around here….but not in Siberia!!  So is this Dude a hero?!  Ha, …like being dared to lick a flag pole!!!  Photos and text are one thing…but Definitely check out the two videos at the bottom!!! …now where is my snorkel?!
