It's funny that I haven't been able to see a winter storm at Shore Acres for two years. Last time I did there was a lyrics challenge and I shoved one in there. The sun came out nicely at times.

If you can't get the size, that wave is literally 150+ feet tall. The overlook is easily 60-70 feet above the water. The swells were 22-24 feet as they came in and would crash upon the headland rocks and if the timing was right would shoot high, high in the air. It's a sight to behold.
