ST. CLOUD - Jumpers lined up at Lake George last (Friday) night for the Polar Express Plunge.

It was nearly 35 degrees outside as some prepared to brave the water. Jumper Susan Egberse says that it has always been on her bucket list to do the polar plunge and she's admired those who have done it before her.

Reactions from diving into the equivalent of a giant bowl of ice cubs varied from "not as bad as I thought" to "that was really freezing cold."

All proceeds go to help the homeless in the St. Cloud community.
