(Emily had two sub-jumpers for her charity. We are crazy in Wisconsin but not crazy enough to have an expecting mother jump in an Icy Lake. That practice ended in the 50’s.)

with wind chill, felt like 9°
The jump is tradition in Milwaukee on New Years day, so we were joined by hundreds of crazy Wisconsinites bringing in the New Year in the coldest way possible. The water in Lake Michigan was only about 35° that day, but that doesn’t sound too bad when the temperature outside was only about 17°! But don’t forget the wind chill! Once that got factored in, it felt like about 9°!
