  1. Residents of a Footdee, Scotland woke up Tuesday morning to find their entire town covered in a strange foam brought in by storm winds.
  2. 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.
  3. Photographs and videos taken by local residents show houses, walkways, roads and cars covered by the substance.
