Icy temperatures on the East Coast aren’t always bad. They can also lead to some fun winter activities in some of the most unlikely places.
According to the Boston Globe, a man found the perfect place to go ice skating on Sunday: Long Sands Beach, in York, Maine.
Peter and Sandra Lekousi recorded the man as the surf came to a frozen halt as it met the sandy beach. But along the shoreline was a perfectly smooth surface that made for a nice skate. Plus, there’s no worry of thin ice.
The recorded lowest temperature for York, Maine, was -9 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday. Sandra told the Globe that it was “too cold for [them] to be on the beach” that day and that the freezing temperatures made the ocean water into “slush.”

Peter jokingly said on Facebook, “I keep trying to tell you all, every day is a beach day in Maine.”
Winter storm Grayson, also known as the “bomb cyclone,” brought blizzard conditions to much of the East Coast last Thursday, and record-breaking sub-zero temperatures gripped the area through the weekend.
