As somebody who has lived in Chicago for pretty much his entire life, I'm a person who understands cold weather. I can deal with cold weather. Snow and wind chills below zero degrees do not bother me.
All that being said, I will never understand why somebody would willingly jump into an ice-cold body of water during the middle of winter, but people keep doing it.
