Just in time for Christmas

The polar plunge has finally retreated back to Canada. 35 degrees on the river felt balmy compared to most days recently. The level finally bumped back to a little closer to normal after several days of wild fluctuations—thankfully! Pictured is Peter with a beauty that took...
