Residents of Footdee, a small fishing village in Aberdeen, Scotland, awoke to find their houses, cars and streets covered in white this morning. No, it wasn't an early snowstorm that blanketed the town. It was sea foam -- or spume -- blown in from the North Sea by heavy winds and crashing waves.
A Marine Scotland spokesman told BBC News
: "Sea foam is created by the interaction of sea water movement and plant plankton residues." The organic mixture turned the area into a natural bubble bath, making for an incredible scene.
