Thousands of Americans braved the cold weather and wore nothing but swimwear and, with a pair of goggles on, dove into the more than 2 feet of snow.

Videos of these adventure seekers surfaced online. One of them was of two women swimming into the snow in Hagerstown, Maryland. They looked like they disappeared into the white pile completely but managed to make their way up after a few seconds.
