Right and proper cold.

After today's swim, I felt right and proper cold. Before we got in the temperature reading was 45 to 46 degrees Fahrenheit at the dock in Sellwood Riverfront park. Once in the water and swimming under the Sellwood bridge it felt a lot colder. I know from experience (and warmer temperatures) that it is definitely 2-5 degrees colder under the bridge. I don't know why this is, whether it's because the water is deeper around the pylons and the eddys churn up cold or water, or because that area is just creepy in general, but I felt way colder under the bridge today. The kind feeling where the pin pricks of cold are the size of dimes on my skin. I think of this feeling of cold as mermaid scales come out. 🧜🧜🧜❄️❄️❄️
