Kodiakans flooded to Mill Bay Beach on New Year’s Day to race into the chilly waters for the annual Polar Bear Plunge. Plungers were greeted with temperatures hovering in the 30s — a far cry from last year’s event that was held in single-digit temperatures. Still, this year’s plungers didn’t spin laps in the water. Instead, they ran out and grabbed a towel to warm up and headed back to their vehicles within minutes of washing off 2020.
