Zen and the art of reading while polar bear plunging These adventurous residents of Delaware's Cape Region scored a first recently when they captured photographs of themselves reading their Cape Gazettes while also engaging in a death-defying, mid-winter Polar Bear plunge. Their own words best describe the situation: "On Feb. 15, the southern branch of the Lewes Polar Bears braved the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean in Key Colony Beach, Florida. At the time the water temperature was a bone-chilling 76 degrees. The air temperature was 84 degrees but the wind chill factor made it seem like only 81 degrees." Only the modesty of the group prevented them from describing how they were able to withstand the numbing cold long enough to enjoy their copies of the Cape Gazette. Of course it took sheer will-power for the first few seconds of being in the water with their newspapers. After those excruciating ticks however the distractedly captivating reading matter on each page of the Gazette put them all into a Zen-like trance enabling them to lose all sense of their tremendous physical discomfort.
