The Sea Was Angry That Day – Falmouth Storm VIDEO

FALMOUTH – The beaches of Falmouth during Thursday’s storm were an amazing sight.

In this town, which is not exactly the surfing part of Cape Cod, there were enormous (though not exactly surf-able) waves.

Nobska Beach looked like Newcomb Hollow Beach, only much crazier. And Chapoquoit Beach… well, it didn’t exist.

We can’t imagine what the Outer Cape beaches looked like during the storm.

This was about as wild as Falmouth has ever looked, short of a hurricane … or blizzard.

In fact, we ran into a friend who works for the water department, and a police officer who kept us from walking to a live wire and dying, and both told us they had not seen a storm like this ever that was not a hurricane.

So while we were taking photos (coming soon) of downed trees and wires, we did a circle of Falmouth’s beaches and recorded this footage. Yes, it was hard to stay upright in all this wind.

  • Not scary in the grand Atlantic scheme of things, historically speaking. Nice pix, tho’. Try Bar Harbor during a good northeaster… out on Ocean Drive IF the gendarmes will allow you to traverse around to Seal Harbor!
