West Jacobs shared some photos of the brave souls who took a swim in Lake Michigan off Simmons Island on New Year’s Day.

For many of these hardy folks, this is an annual tradition.

West said the water temp was a relatively balmy 31 degrees, but the air temp was just 14 degrees.  Net result?  COLD!

Diver Dan’s shop assisted with the annual event. Thanks to West for sharing his photos.  (See more photos by clicking link below.)
