So what began as a normal frigid water swim in the sea, ended an minute later with 2 cops as well as an ambulance at the scene.
This afternoon was colder than normal I noticed as I biked to our swim spot. It was a great test of our 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 our 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 sizzling up however 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 plan why the air was on when outside it was about 45F, but I did guess that I was still frigid frigid from our 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 however the hypothermia was starting to dissipate. There is no heat pump in the sea as well as mother nature does not hold back her fury even on a calm afternoon such as this week. The sea has taken various lives from those who dare to challenge its limits as well as I was close to that limit this week. As I stand in front of our space oil furnace still trying to sizzling up from that slap on the wrist from the sea I have even more respect for the power of the earth’s oceans.
