coldest polar bear swim yet??!!

This is today's forecast for the first day of 2008:

A STRONG COLD FRONT IS SCHEDULED FOR PASSAGE THROUGH THE SEMI-
TROPICS AT THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT NEW YEARS EVE...DRIVING WINDS
NORTH AT 20 TO 30 MPH AND BRINGING DRY...COLD AIR TO THE RIO
GRANDE VALLEY. GALE CONDITIONS ARE ANTICIPATED TO
DEVELOP WITH SEAS AT 12 FEET OVER OUR MARINE AREAS BY SUNRISE TUESDAY.

High of 58 predicted for Jan. 1 --? This does not bode well for the 10th annual Polar Bear Dip. In fact, this could be the year the weather separates the polar bears from the teddy bears (and I am not sure yet which category I will fall into.)

As a side note, we hear that Dan Quandt suffered a stroke up in IN on Christmas Eve. Glad it was a minor one and hope he is able to return to the Island very soon.

NOAA says the surf temperature is 62, a little cooler than last year.
