Foam covers Scottish village after freak storm
Residents of a small fishing village near Aberdeen woke up Tuesday morning to find their entire town covered in a strange foam brought in by storm winds.
- Residents of a Footdee, Scotland woke up Tuesday morning to find their entire town covered in a strange foam brought in by storm winds.
- Several observers cracked jokes about the foam, likening the small fishing town to a giant car wash, bubble bath, frat party or winter wonderland after the storm passed.
But it was actually sea foam, a mixture of seawater, sand and ocean material, that blanketed Footdee, which is on the west coast of Scotland near Aberdeen.
- Photographs and videos taken by local residents show houses, walkways, roads and cars covered by the substance.
- A video posted to YouTube by the BBC shows foam so high that it's difficult for a mid-sized dog to go outdoors without being eclipsed by it.
Footdee is one of many places in the U.K. being affected by severe weather this week.
- Fortunately for the residents of Footdee (or unfortunately, depending on whether or not you happen to like seafoam,) most of the foam has now dissipated.
