Yesterday, we had the opportunity to witness our first Lake George Winter Carnival polar bear plunge (see Youtube video here). Although we were not drunk brave enough to participate in the mayhem, we feel compelled to tip our hats to those young men and women who bared some skin (especially the twenty-something year old brunette in the black bikini), risked hypothermia and took the plunge. Here's to Lake George's very own polar bears. Winter carnival is over and it is time for the Lake George polar bears to find a comfy cave and hibernate but we eagerly anticipate their return on January 1, 2013. Sleep well polar bears, sleep well.
