I will throw in an anecdote from a church I attended.

For whatever reason (The pastor being an avid fisherman leading the list) this church set up an open-air baptism in Meadow Lake, Idaho. Meadow Lake is at about 8000 feet, in a glacial cirque.

To describe it as simply cold is an understatement. I was standing by as a safety wearing long underwear, jeans, and chest waders and was still cold. The "dunkees" were coming out blue.

It was set up as a communal camping trip, which we didn't stay for, and as we were leaving it started snowing. In (late) summer.
