Crazy pictures of frozen Portland marina

The DiMillo family in Portland is best known for their iconic floating restaurant, which is located right in the heart of the historic Old Port district at the end of Long Wharf.

In the past several days they’ve posted some crazy pictures to the marina’s Facebook page of what is now being regarded as a historic freeze of Portland harbor.
