Too many people. Took the shot as I was leaving the Tower of London. People skating in 2017, feet from the site of many a beheading and murder.

It was so fun! Granted, the water was only 58F and the air about 60F. I was told we should be embarrassed by our shrilly excitement at going in at those wimpy temperatures. I can't wait to do it again next year. Our new thing has been to have a New Year's Day party. After we jumped in, we walked back to the house, took hot showers, and had a party out front.

Does it ‘reset’ your internal temp?

I’m asking because I found when I did the sauna-ice water jump (+80 to -0 (or whatever the river temp was in ice clearing)). I had been wearing full gear outside before. After didn’t feel at all as cold for the rest of the stay and wore a lot less clothes outside.

I walked home wet and didn't feel cold at all. The person I jumped in with took my towel, but I didn't need it. Like you, I had been previously bundled up. Well, bundled up for 60f (15c).

Delicious. We kept the heat as low as possible for a few hours and toward the end of the cook, let it sit for 10 minutes. Cut the ribs in smaller pieces, more sauce and back on the grill.

Bleak? Sun is shining, hardly any snow, two happy grandmas crossing the road... for Northern European winter, this was a good day! I could post some photos which would reset your conceptual idea of "bleak".

Note the people sitting outside the fence in this one - too cheap to pay the $10 entry free (kids were free, which is why there were so many families with kids at this. And the kids were generally running wild playing their own cricket games up on the hill to the left of this pic)
