If you haven’t noticed from all the screenshots of weather apps posted on your Facebook and Instagram feeds—or from, you know, stepping outside—it’s been cold outside. Really, really, dreadfully cold. Especially in Boston, where wind chills have made it feel like -15°F.

But bitter cold and strong winds didn’t stop former LSU swimmer Julius Gloeckner from going for a dip. He decided to don his Speedo, swim cap and googles and dive right into the huge snowdrift currently filling his backyard pool.

Watch as he expertly performs several different strokes, but maybe grab a blanket first, because you’ll feel extra cold just watching.
