Thousands of Chicagoans took to the beach Sunday for the Polar Plunge, along with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Jimmy Fallon.
It was not a great day to be dipping into the frigid lake. Tempuratures on the lakefront as Falon and the mayor launched themselves in were at 8 degrees with water temperatures in the 30s.
