By Greg Farrar Frigid start to the new year Connor Broughton, 12, Keith Nussbaum, 13, and twin brother Ben (left to right), all of Issaquah, have goosebumps and chattering teeth as they pop out of the cold water of Lake Sammamish at Idylwood Park in Redmond, on New Year’s Day in the Polar Plunge for Washington Special Olympics, after taking part with about 30 other swimmers. The water temperature was in the mid-40s for the Issaquah Swim Team teammates, including the fourth friend in their group, Henry Dees, 12 (not pictured). The swim registrations and pledges raised more than $9,300 for Special Olympics.
