SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah -- An annual event that raises funds for Special Olympics took a little creativity to put on this year, as the ice necessary for a "Polar Plunge" was nowhere to be found due to unseasonably warm weather.
In previous years, event organizers would cut a hole in the ice at Utah Lake, and participants who raised funds for their jump would then plunge into the frigid water. However, this year record-high warm weather has meant that isn't a viable option. The lake is also at a lower level than usual, which meant there wasn't a good place for plungers to make their leap. Still, organizers kept the event going by modifying it to use a big above-ground pool and a giant slide.
