Polar vows

    There were no cold feet this weekend for a western Pennsylvania couple – just cold everything.

    Judy Herilla and Adam Lipinski exchanged vows on a water taxi and then joined hundreds of others leaping into the frigid waters of the Monongahela River on New Year’s Day for the Pittsburgh Polar Bear Club’s annual dip.

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says the bride wore a veil and a long, purple-and-white tutu along with her swimsuit. The groom had a T-shirt with a tuxedo printed on it to go along with his shorts.

    Brrrr.
