ORLEANS (CBS) — Ahead of a massive nor’easter’s expected arrival in New England later this week, there was another wintery sight rolling onto a Cape Cod beach Thursday morning: Slurpee-like waves.

Photographer Darius Aniunas captured a video of “waves frozen into slush” on Skaket Beach in Orleans.

Slushy waves or “Slurpee waves” have become somewhat of a local wintertime phenomenon around New England in the past several years. They were famously spotted in Nantucket in 2015 and more recently in Eastham last January.

WBZ-TV executive weather producer Terry Eliasen explained last year that exceptionally cold air needs to be in place for frozen waves to form.

“Seawater freezes at 28.4 degrees, not 32 degrees, due to the salt content. As the ocean water begins to freeze, you get needle-like ice crystals called “frazil” to form in the water. The salt, of course, doesn’t freeze and begins to separate from the water and ice crystals,” Eliasen said.

“The slushy look comes from the fact that the ocean is in constant motion (unlike a lake or pond). The frazil (ice crystals) begin to collide and coalesce and meld into a slushy appearance,” he adds. “Of course, if the temperatures remain frigid for a long period of time, you will start to form ice chunks and sheets, something even rarer in our area.”

Bundle up and check out the slushy waves while you can – the forecast calls for a warmup later next week.

Watch: Angel Hernandez in peak form for Astros-Nationals matchup

Every game Angel Hernandez umpires is a show for the fans, and not for a good reason. The Houston Astros and Washington Nationals found this out the hard way. 

Hernandez is the best argument we have for an electronic strike zone, or robot umpires as some may call it. While the umpires’ union continues to come to his defense, Hernandez has proven time and time again that he is not an MLB-caliber ump.

It’s not that hard to figure out.

In Sunday’s game between the Astros and Nationals, Hernandez put his stamp on the matchup right away. With Houston up to bat, Angel confused us all.

Okay, so we know Hernandez has a high strike zone today. As long as he’s consistent…

HAPPY ANGEL HERNANDEZ DAY ???? pic.twitter.com/R198PJNcKo

Excuse me?! That’s a solid three inches off the plate.

Angel Hernandez doing Angel Hernandez things

Unlike Joe West, who rode off into the sunset and started a podcast, Hernandez has shown no signs of retirement just yet. Instead, he seems content being the bane of every fanbase’s existence, and perhaps the greatest argument yet for some kind of electronic strike zone interjection.

‘Robot umps’ is consistently an overstatement, and likely wouldn’t even be a conversation point were umpires such as Hernandez not forced behind the plate in a rotation of sorts. Hernandez might be a good ump in other aspects. Is his leadership appreciated as a crew chief? Sure! Would he make a good first or third base umpire? I don’t know, but maybe!

Home plate is not where Hernandez belongs, period.
