It's been a dreary, cold, stormy past couple of days for St. Louis. Depressing, right? Daily RFT is here for you -- or rather, a bunch of people who decided to take off their clothes and pretend it's not the worst time of winter are here for you.

For your viewing pleasure, we've collected photos of not one, but two local events over the weekend that involved some spirited defiance of the awfulness of February. We've got the Polar Plunge into Creve Coeur Lake -- and the Beach Party at the Missouri Botanical Garden's Climatron (which was part of the Tower Grove Pride initiative we wrote about last week).

Take a look at how much fun they are having in the photos below and pretend it's summer!
