Cape Codsicles


From @Dapixara: "Turtle, king of the Ice." (via Twitter)

According to my relatives in Boston, local news is abuzz with a debate over whether they want one more snowstorm to break annual snowfall records (they're just a few inches short) or whether they just want spring to finally come. Well, across the bay on Cape Cod, a whole new kind of insane snowfall is occurring, namely landfall by huge icebergs. These haven't appeared on the beach for a few years, but after this year's brutally cold temperatures (read here on why this winter had been so weird) and heavy snowfalls on already-frozen seas (like the "slurpee waves" of Nantucket) have created bergs the size of small shacks. Cape Cod-based photographer Dapixara captured these amazing pictures of the icy boulders with all kinds of curious onlookers.

Head to Dapixara's site to see more photos of the icebergs, especially since who knows how many more times it will get cold enough for them to form?
