This is something that you don’t see very often, a frozen bay. The cold temperatures of December 2017 and January 2018 led to the bay freezing. Back in the 1970’s the bay froze enough so that some people were actually driving on the ice…. until they found the spots that weren’t frozen as hard as they thought.
A neighbor sent a few photos of my Mom’s house in North Beach Haven. He said the snow was really drifting. The Boulevard was clear in some spots and you would come to a 5′ drift. The snowstorm was followed by some extremely cold temperatures.
