It’s So Cold In New England the Ocean Shore Has Frozen

It’s So Cold In New England the Ocean Shore Has Frozen

It’s been so cold in America that frozen iguanas are falling out of trees in Florida, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find sympathy farther up the coast for Southerners having to deal with unimaginable “low” temperatures in the 30s and 40s–not when phrases like “arctic air” and “record setting lows” have become the most frequent words uttered by meteorologists in New England. But just how cold has it really been in the Northeast? Is this extreme weather really all that bad?

Well it’s so cold the ocean shore froze. The. Ocean. Froze. Yes, that can happen.

This video from YouTube user Ryan Canty shows Old Silver Beach in Falmouth, Massachusetts, which is part of Cape Cod. You should see water splashing along its shore even in the winter, but the bitter, weeks-long cold has turned the coast into an icy frozen wasteland, the kind you’d expect to find Luke Skywalker and Han Solo surviving inside of a tauntaun.

While the “whole” or “entire” ocean is most definitely not frozen as the video says, the coast area looks like a glacier. Did anyone investigate to make sure Queen Elsa didn’t freeze over Falmouth the way she did Arendelle? Wouldn’t that be less depressing than having to face the reality of this weather? (As someone who lives 90 minutes away from Falmouth, I can honestly say yes.)

Although it does look kind of beautiful, especially when it breaks up a little.

Although some of us have clearly developed Stockholm Syndrome with the cold, like this person who has CLEARLY LOST THEIR MIND.

If you want to go view this chilly phenomenon, please do so safely and do not follow in the YouTuber’s footsteps and walk out onto the ice. The surface may be frozen, but that doesn’t extend to the ocean floor. Admire the ice from afar.
