Nippy? Swimming at -18C
Nippy a bit? Swimming at a lake when it is -18C.
It has been exceptionally cold in Finland on recent days (in the warmed-up climate at least). I wanted to enjoy the smoke sauna at Kuusijärvi again, so I did that, and also dipped into the hole in the lake. Very quickly, and only about breast level, not all the way in.
Felt good. The sauna was overfull today, but it seemed like everyone found a place eventually.
