It is getting weirder and weirder! It’s so cold on the US east coast right now that iguanas are freezing and falling from the trees before RESURRECTING in Florida, while flood waters resulting from Bomb cyclone Grawson are freezing, capturing hundreds of cars in ice in Massachusetts.
In Massachusetts, damaging storm surges, high winds, and blizzard conditions pound Scituate. Bomb cyclone Grayson pounds the Massachusetts Coast flooding homes, and huge 15-20 foot waves slam chunks of ice and debris against buildings. The next footage was shot in/near Scituate, MA during morning and afternoon daylight on January 4, 2018 by Meteorologist Simon Brewer:
Now it seems that these flooding waters have started to freeze trapping hundreds of cars in very thick ice. Here a video at Short Beach in Severe, Massachusetts:

That’s completely crazy! Here some more pictures:
Besides the first snow in 28 years in the state’s capital, Tallahassee, another side effect of cold weather in South Florida is frozen iguanas. Yes, the temperatures dipped below 40 degrees Fahrenheit early Thursday in parts of South Florida. That’s chilly enough to immobilize green iguanas, which then fall from their perches in suburban trees.
But don’t assume they’re dead!
The cold-blooded creatures start to get sluggish when temperatures fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. If temperatures drop below that, iguanas freeze up. It’s just too cold for them to move. But don’t assume that they’re dead: Well-meaning residents finding stiffened iguanas are advised to leave them alone, as they may feel threatened and bite once they warm up.
Yes, iguanas RESURRECT:
They’re not the only reptiles stunned by this week’s cold snap: Sea turtles also stiffen up when temperatures fall. The wildlife commission’s biologists have been rescuing 80 cold-stunned sea turtles found floating listlessly on the water or near shore. They are now in rehabilitation at Gulf World Marine Institute in Panama City.
A two-week-long cold snap with temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit in 2010 killed off many iguanas, along with Burmese pythons and other invasive pests that thrive in South Florida’s subtropical climate. Those populations have since rebounded:
Do you also have something weird to report about this incredible low bomb cyclone currently engulfing the US east coast?
