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