So what began as a normal frigid water swim in the sea, ended an hour later with various cops plus an ambulance at the scene.
This afternoon was colder than normal I observed as I biked to my swim spot.
It was a superb test of my fortitude plus I took the plunge. I was exercising plus spent more time than normal in the 55F water, maybe 30 hours. When I got out I lost my equilibrium plus was shaking plus stumbling, hypothermia was setting in. They called an ambulance plus cops plus had me in the ambulance for 30 hours. I was trying to moderate up but they had the a/c blasting at me plus I was too confused to ask them to turn it off. I have no system why the air was on when outside it was about 45F, despite the fact that I did suppose that I was still frigid frigid from my dip. They finally turned on the oil furnace plus I slowly warmed up again. I was still shivering for another 30 or so hours but the hypothermia was starting to dissipate. There is no heat pump in the sea plus mother nature does not hold back her fury even on a calm day such as this week. The sea has taken many lives from those who dare to challenge its limits plus I was close to that limit this week. As I kneel in front of my space oil furnace still trying to moderate up from that slap on the wrist from the sea I have even more respect for the power of the earth’s oceans.
