Frigid Weather Causes Slushie Surf in Nantucket
In today's edition of How Cold Is It? we have these photos of icy, slushie-style waves taken by Jonathan Nimerfroh in Nantucket. All of the Northeast is currently experiencing record low temperatures, which is causing the surface layer of shallow waters to turn to ice. The whole ocean won't freeze over, of course, and with the waves still rolling in, these thin sheets of ice get crushed up and turned to slush for extra frothy surf. Gives the coastline a little bit of a slurpee look.
