Butt Cold

Yesterday morning as I was getting up, we had some rather nice pastels over Ten Pound Island. Looking at the could pattern out to sea, I has thinking to myself that it looked more like a mid-winter weather phenomenon when the temperature dips.

Looking due east, I could see the cold weather cloud pattern off shore. This shot looks over East Gloucester towards the Atlantic ocean.

As the sun started to graze over Gloucester Harbor, I saw the sea smoke. Yeah, it’s “Butt Cold” out there. The temperature was 8F.

Beautiful, but one can feel the cold lurking out there!

Wonderful images Steve.
Just seen that light house on the film "The Perfect Storm", a George Clooney film about the fishermen of Gloucester.

Nice shots Steve. They convey the coldness. I like these Northeast images!

As always, great shots.
Here in Alabama, we've had unusually cold temperatures (low 20's and teens) and snow Friday night through this morning which resulted in just a dusting of the white stuff, but spots of ice on roads. Hoping to post photos--they will give folks in more northern areas chuckles.

Oh, I forgot to ask--is "Butt Cold" is a sort form of "cold as a well-digger's butt?"
