For residents of Massachusetts, Winter 2015 will likely go down as the year the weather lost its mind. First, there were the nearly frozen "slush waves" crashing ashore in Nantucket:

And now, Cape Cod's been visited by enormous icebergs arriving on the beach from the near-frozen bay.

In reality, though, Massachusetts just had a ridiculously cold and snowy winter, one with possible links to our rapidly changing climate. According to WBZ-TV Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher, the towering icebergs may well be a “once-in-a-generation” occurrence. They're reportedly already shrinking as the East Coast finally warms up, but check them out in their full glory, courtesy of photographer Dapixara:
