The recent record cold snap has subsided a bit and it’s going to get up into the 50’s this weekend. BUT, it was SO COLD last week and this past weekend, there were a few never before seen occurrences in Maine and Cape Cod. A man skated on Long Sands Beach in York, Maine. It’s beautiful to watch! THEN, Old Silver Beach in Falmouth on Cape Cod completely froze over. I’ve spent many sunny, hot summer days playing in the waves with my family at Old Silver. I think of it as a hot weather destination. NOT ANYMORE!
