I was reading when very cold water goes up your nasal cavity it can do some bad things. I'll have to check but some things were gasp and disorientation. I mean if I go out (not that I can roll) you won't have a nose plug on while paddling. It also said it can severely limit your attempts to roll when cold.
Now I have a dry suit I still have not gone out with all the ice on my walks and floaters. Next week I prepare for eye surgery with doctor appointments. Then good bye glasses after cataracts are gone. when paddling no more cleaning glasses! That will be great I can see where I am going in the Boston Whaler and she won't be telling me there's the buoy go right or left!
With no work for my commercial masonry business and no excess funds for the road race Corvette it will be a big paddling year ahead!
Can't wait to get my eyes done!
I took the infa-red gun to the water yesterday and it said 27* F I guess it could read that cold if it is reading surface temperature? May be the gun is off a few degrees? I guess it depends on salinity of the water.
