Now that winter is upon us, you can expect to see lots of news stories about cars driving through intense blizzard conditions. This, though it certainly looks the part, isn't one of those times. Although it appears that the white stuff falling from the sky in the videos after the jump is heavy snow, it's actually a product called 'spume' – salt-water sea foam.

Britain's Fylde Coast was struck by a massive windstorm last week, with wind gusts as high as 130 miles per hour. Spume is the product of decaying algae and other organic materials in the salt water, and the heavy winds whipped it all up onto shore, causing havoc for residents of the costal town Cleveleys.

Hit the jump to see a trio of videos of the falling foam for yourself.
