Growing up in the Northeast, I have become accustomed to cold winters. The frosty mornings, snow-filled days, and chilly temps are all to be expected. However, rarely we get arctic wind chills so low that it turns our icy Marblehead Harbor into a steaming bath.
I was out walking my youngest dog, Tennessee, on our morning stroll by the water when I witnessed “arctic sea smoke” for the first time. It stopped me in my tracks and made me run home for my camera.
With wind chills reaching -30 degree F, the pictures were painful to take, but worth every frozen finger.
