Update: This event was just cancelled because of more warm weather.
Our original story: Warm weather ruined the New Year's weekend Evergreen Lake Plunge, forcing the nonprofit Drive Smart and the Evergreen Park & Recreation District to reschedule its annual fundraiser. Assuming the weather is cold enough, the Plunge is now set for Saturday, February 12.
