rackay cold water

This water in the Arctic is about as pure and as cold as you are likely to find that is not frozen, but is drinking it that cold good for you?

During my time in the Florida Keys, we carried gallons of ice water on a fishing trip. The temperatures would be in the triple digits as the sun reflected off the light-colored bottom of the saltwater flats. The humidity was so thick that fish swam in it.

I would take a healthy swig from the water jug that was buried in the ice at the bottom of the cooler. You could actually feel the water pass directly through your pores as you drank it. While the water did little to hydrate me, it sure helped cool the system down. Now I hear that cold water might not be good for you. What am I going to drink when it is hot, a cup of coffee?
