Rubber Duck Hears Her Echo!


Rubber Duck! Get off that ice or your next port o’ call is Portugal!


Where did Kiwi Cow go? RD: “Last I saw her she was huffing on the car defrost.”


RD: “My Limbago is kicking up can we go back to the car now?”


RD: “You see that sea smoke heading to Spain? That means the hike back to the car is into the wind!”


RD: “Where is my helmet?”


This was running water three days ago? Polar Vortex? We used to call it a “Cold Snap”.


“Can you see the moon RD? RD: “I can hear my ass crack in two under the arch and I did hear an echo. Home James, to the Superglue!”

To all the people (Skip Montello et al) who got up at the crispy crack of dawn (see what I did there?) and took photos of the sea smoke when it was wild and crazy I thank you. Better you than me and you take better photos anyway. Find them on Facebook in “Rockport Stuff”. Skip takes some of them in Infrared which are mind boggling.

nb. There is an old wive’s tale about the noise a duck makes, the quack, does not echo. Glad we cleared that nonsense up.

This morning I set out to check on the swans at Niles Pond and was as captivated by the beautiful sea smoke coming off the Atlantic as were my fellow contributors. I didn’t see the swans, but then again, it was too cold to look for very long.

Sea Smoke From Skip Montello


The low morning temps produced a 40 degree temp differential between air and water creating a sea smoke spectacle all around the Cape.
