Slurpee waves Nantucket
Beachgoers in Nantucket, Massachusetts were astonished on Tuesday to witness a rare slushy ocean water phenomenon known as "slurpee waves."

Photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh captured the remarkable spectacle after being tipped off by local surfers who were able to ride the partially frozen breakers.

"With a floundering temperature in the low, single digits this past week, I knew there was a good chance the Slurpee Waves would find their way back to Nantucket," Nimerfroh explained to weather.com in an email.

"Sure enough, on the morning of Jan. 2 I pulled my car up to Nobadeer beach and there they were," he added.

Nimerfroh had previously seen the stunning frozen waves back in 2015 but didn't know if he'd ever get the opportunity to witness them again.

"This time, two friends surfed just beyond the icy eddie, hooting and hollering and holding up giant icebergs above their heads in neoprene gloved hands. I ran up and down the beach, taking as many shots as I could of this freezing, fleeting show of nature. Slurpee waves are the kind of thing you might only be lucky enough to see once, so I count myself as very lucky to have seen them twice."

Salty ocean water takes on the consistency of slush when temperatures reach 28.8 degrees, according to Smithsonian Magazine.
Het is zo koud daar dat er ijskristallen in de golven zitten...

Zo voelde ongeveer m'n hele rit naar werk. Overal ijs. Auto's die heuvels niet op kwamen, van de weg gegleden auto's, rond spinnende en door verkeerslichten glijdende mensen, en glijden zonder dat je rem gebruikt of gas geeft. Dat het vanmiddag maar weer weggesmolten mag zijn.

Sneeuwstorm voor de VS.

quote:
Disruptive snow is spreading over the midwestern United States as a snowstorm threatens to halt travel across the region.

Conditions will deteriorate through Friday morning as snow spreads eastward across the region. The heaviest snow is forecast to fall from central Iowa through southern Michigan where up to a foot of accumulation is possible. This includes stretches of Interstates 35, 69, 75, 80, 90, 94 and 96.

“Major flight delays and cancellations are likely in Chicago and Detroit,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

Over 600 flights scheduled for Friday have already been canceled between Chicago Midway International and O’Hare International Airports, according to FlightStats, with more cancellations likely.

Californië heeft deze winter tot nu toe extreem weinig sneeuw (blauwe lijn) terwijl vorig jaar juist extreem veel sneeuw had.
Dat wordt voor mij dus extra water dragen in de woestijn maar een ijsbijl ga ik waarschijnlijk niet nodig hebben als het zo blijft.

Dry, hot California winter closes ski resorts, stalls wildflower blooms and revives drought fears

quote:
If February joins December and January into record-setting dryness, "then California is marching into unprecedented territory, which has never been seen before in the recorded climate history," Steve Johnson, long-range forecaster with Atmospherics Group International, said in an email. "Unless March and/or April bring abundant rains … this rainfall season could end up being one of, or possibly THE driest in our climate history."

Ik keek vorige week naar het nieuws en toen ging het over een demonstratie in Washington DC. Wat me opviel is dat iedereen in korte broek liep. Toen ik het weerbericht checkte van aldaar bleek het 28 graden Celsius te zijn.

Zie ook dit tabelletje (bij 21/2): https://www.accuweather.c(...)ruary-weather/327659 . Normaal is het 7 graden.

Dit is toch bizar? Of komt zoiets vaker voor in die streek? Kon met google niet echt vinden dat dit extreem is ofzo (cq. niks over vinden). Weet iemand hoe dit precies kan?
