Yesterday at sunrise, when my weather app said it was -6 degrees, staying under the covers seemed like a good idea...until I looked out the window and saw hundreds of plumes of mist rising off the ocean. Mist over the saltmarsh is pretty common, but not over open water like this. But then, it isn't everyday that the ocean here on the southcoast is 45 degrees warmer than the air.
Off I went to beach with only my iphone and tried to capture the magic until my fingers got numb - which wasn't long. The high tide line was a wall of cascading ice forms and little crystals of ice formed briefly as low tide laps of water hit the shore.
