Photo Gallery: Hillsboro’s Polar Plunge

In the third year of a New Year’s Day tradition, residents of Hillsboro this afternoon got out the chain saw and cut open a hole in the 5-inch-thick ice on Belle Ware’s pond.

Then they started jumping in.

At 32 degrees, the water was 10 degrees warmer than the air.
