There were a number of people taking the plunge for the first time like Jenny Carmichael. "Well I think it's going to be pretty frigid and that when I come out I won't be able to walk because my muscles will be cold," Ms. Carmichael said. After Evan Slates of Bowling Green got out of the water he got on one knee and asked his girlfriend Kendra Kohring to marry him- she said yes.
