March 2, 2014. I knew I should be at the Polar Plunge an hour or more ahead of time for a good position, but I didn't make it there that early and couldn't get a good shot of the water until the crowd cleared out a little bit. Fortunately, I did end up next to the VIP bus from which Rahm Emanuel, Israel Idonije, and Jimmy Fallon emerged. I got photos of icy Fallon and Idonije heading to the warm drying tent before going closer to the water to get some fun photos of the rest of the event. My fingers are no longer numb.
