Our nor’easter made the national news, and so did Kelly’s video of it

Over the last couple of days, we had our first nor’easter since we moved to Winthrop.  The storm caused wind speeds here near the coast to pick up quite a bit, and as  result there was a pretty heavy surf along the beaches here too.

That is all seawater that came over the wall.

The northern road out of Winthrop is along a seawall, and so while we were driving along it this morning we noticed that there were a lot of whitecaps, and we could see waves breaking over the seawall in a few places.  There was a lot of seawater in the road, but not enough to close it, I guess.  The waves were even coming high enough over the wall to cover the car.  See?

That's ocean water covering the window, not rain.

Anyway, while I drove Kelly took some video just as we stopped at a traffic light.

Later this morning Kelly called me to tell me that CNN had tweeted at us and wanted to use her video.

Not long after that, NBC tweeted at us and also wanted to use it.

So if you see any videos on CNN or NBC that look like the one Kelly shot above… well, it may just be her video after all.
