Ha! The blood froze in my veins just watching this, Jane! I love their accents - is this what you sound like?
Yes, that's what we sound like :) I never think of myself as having an accent - (I don't hear what you're hearing) - but I suppose I do.
Oh I have seen people swimming like this on TV...how cold that must be...is it really cabin fever why people do that?
Lol! No, they're just a couple of crazy Canucks - no brain no pain as they say :)
Oh ok..now I know :)
Hahaha...that was funny! I didn't expect that :) But oh my goodness, did I shiver when I saw him coming out of that water! Brrrrrr...
Yikes, that's one thing I'd never partake in! You can hear how cold it must have been in Mike's voice when he first tries to speak.
it's a penguin man :)Only a few days ago we had hundreds of young men do a similar thing - swimming in freezing cold rivers and hunting for some holy crossed made from ice in celebration of a certain saints day.
PS Jane, sister, I forgot to tell you that I so lurv lurv your candleholder with those cats :) Such delight!
We have winter carnivals here where brave souls take a 'Polar Bear Dip.' No way I'd ever consider it.Thank you :) I wish you could see it up close - each of their faces is different - and adorable.
They do things like that where I'm from, too. Brr...
'Why' is what I wonder, lol!!
I shivered just watching that :)Rick
Me too, Rick!! I'd need a hot bath ready to jump straight into.
This is a great sport but it helps to be a wee bit crazy.....lolI spent 31 years living in Northern Ontario (Timmins). I now live in Southern Ontario now (the banana belt) and miss the north (but only once in a while) but did love the summers up there.Remember "You Gotta Be Tough" to be a Northerner.
I have no doubt that it's quite 'invigorating' to say the least! I guess you'd find out if you had a heart problem, if nothing else :)
And people call me crazy.
Hehe! I'd like to speak with these people... :D
hahaha...too funny! brrrrrr....
Brrrrr for sure! I notice he hopped into his housecoat right away :)
Ya gotta love this video of crazy canucks!
Sometimes you've got to make your own 'fun' when you're way out in the boonies!
Zimno mi się zrobiło na sam widok wychodzących z lodowatej wody ludzi. Pozdrawiam.I made a cold at the sight of ice-cold water coming out of people. Yours.
I felt the same way Giga - I'm still cold :)
They are so laid back dead pan about it! Hahahahaha! And I didn't even see a shiver!!
You're right - except for that tremble in Mike's voice when he first went to speak - they didn't seem to bat an eye.
Lol! I imagine they were wide awake after that :)
Ughh! Reminds me of watching people in northern Finland taking a dip in an icy river in January as part of their sauna 'ritual'. It was so cold that your breath froze in your nostrils as soon as you stepped outside. No thanks!
Oh, now that's cold!
Yep. That's Canadians for you.I've been ice fishing once and just like them I had no luck. :(
I've only been ice fishing a few times myself and had no bites either.
I can tolerate the cold but not cold water. Also, I can't swim. So needless to say, you won't see me doing this any time soon. :)
I don't know - these sound like excuses to me... lol!
OM look at his skin! It is all bright red. I think I would just drop dead in an instant.
I guess this is certainly a good way to get the old circulation going :)
Great fun!! Love this video!!! Got to love northern Ontario ;o)
They are a hearty bunch for sure!
oh now, that's just nuts! I know lots of crazy Finns who do ice fishing :O
Yes, I've heard many stories about crazy Finns over the years, lol!!
i grew up in cleveland....yep, this is just about right :)
Being from Cleveland, you certainly are no stranger to the cold :)
Congratulations on winning the raven, Jane. It seems whenver there is an animal give-away you win it!! :D
Thanks Francie :) It must be just about time for another Miss Eulalie giveaway. I must say, she's been a godsend for me - she saved my ass (literally) all year!
Hee hee.. I love Ontario; trust me, when you live in 30 degree heat every day, you do start to miss that snow :)
30 degrees sounds delightful right now - we're set to dip to -26 overnight... !
Oh Lord, he's got to be freezing!
He must be, but it's amazing how blasé he comes across :)
Just another day in "da bush" as they'd say.
HeeHee! Yep, Cabin Fever alright!
Lol!! Thank goodness it's already February - spring will be here before we know it :)
