VIDEO: Man dressed as Elsa frees Boston police van stuck in snow

A man dressed as Elsa from the hit movie Frozen freed a Boston police van Tuesday during the third nor’easter to hit the area in two weeks.

Because as the city was snowed in – again – what’s there to do but go to a bar, get a pint, and wear an Elsa costume?

Maybe the northeast is getting a little stir crazy from all this winter weather.

According to People, Jason Triplett, an attorney from Boston, was at the South End’s Gallows pub when the police van got stuck in the record snowfall.

“The Gallows is just one of those places that everybody in the neighborhood everyone knows is open on a snow day,” Chris Haynes, who was hanging out at the bar, tells PEOPLE. “It was rowdy. All of a sudden these drag queens come in, and one of them dressed as Elsa. He was like ‘I wanted to blend in tonight so I threw this on.’ Nobody even knew this cop was stuck, but he ran out to help.”

JUST IN: Significant hazardous marine conditions this weekend following front

GOES-16 satellite imagery of winter storm hitting the Northeast and expected to bring high seas and cool weather to South Florida.

A wrecking ball of a winter storm is about to bust up the recent hot weather with a fury that meteorologists predict could bring up to 15-foot seas to Palm Beach County’s coastline and send life-threatening flooding into the Northeast.

A low pressure system, whose strength was still in debate just days ago, is now expected to undergo an explosive strengthening as it harasses states from Virginia to Maine with peak wind gusts of hurricane force possible along the coast. The forecast drop in atmospheric pressure of at least 24 millibars in 24 hours or less is called bombogenesis.

In South Florida, the National Weather Service is warning of coastal flooding, powerful rip currents, high seas and beach erosion building into Sunday through mid-week.

The highest seas along Palm Beach County’s coast are expected Sunday night at between 12-15 feet.

“With the marine and coastal concerns this weekend, and next week, we will be providing a daily briefing through at least the weekend, and possibly into the beginning of the week,” said Steven Ippoliti, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami. “The main concerns are hazardous seas and beach erosion. Also, relative humidity may impact some of those with fire weather concerns, as the RH may drop into the 20s.”

In Massachusetts, voluntary evacuations of some coastal communities during high tides have been recommended with forecasters in the Boston office of the National Weather Service calling the advancing storm a “life and death” situation.

“Exacerbating the event will be the highest tides of the month — more than a foot above average, associated with the full moon,” said Weather Underground co-founder Jeff Masters in his Cat 6 blog. “The Northeast U.S. will receive a punishing assault from a large storm surge and high waves that will last through three high tide cycles.”

For South Florida, the storm will punch through a cold front Friday, dropping temperatures from a Thursday high of 85 to a forecast high Saturday of 75. Sunday morning temperatures are expected to be in the mid- to high-50s along the coast, with inland areas dipping into the 40s.

The cold weather will be an abrupt change to February, which ended with an average temperature in West Palm Beach of 75.3 degrees, breaking a 59-year old record of 74.4 set in 1959.

“I’m still peeling from two crazy sunburns that I got last month. It was hot,” said Grace Kalinsky, who recently moved to West Palm Beach and was enjoying the sun Thursday at City Place. “But I’m from Connecticut so everything feels hot and humid here.”

Gators, Zika, but at least this will never happen in Florida

The late-season winter storm that smacked the northeast this week left some inland areas buried in snow and a group of innocent commuters awash in the white stuff.

In this video from Rhinecliff, N.Y., riders are waiting for their train on Wednesday when the unexpected happens.

The estimated 2 feet of snow that had accumulated on the tracks ends up in their faces.

The man who took the video, Craig Oleszewski, told NBC, New York, Channel 4 that the train appeared to overshoot the platform.

“Another witness said some people were knocked to the ground,” Channel 4 reported.

There was some criticism this week about the forecast for this storm, which didn’t have the kind of snowfall in major eastern cities that was originally predicted.

New York City was forecast originally to get 18 to 24 inches. About 7 inches fell with a mix of sleet and rain.

This morning on The Weather Channel, hosts Jim Cantore and Stephanie Abrams asked Greg Carbin, chief of forecast operations at the Weather Prediction Center in suburban Maryland, whether the criticism was warranted.

“The atmosphere is full of mystery leading up to an event like this one and when it gets down to forecasting it, you’re not dealing with a full deck. Mother Naure holds back a card or two,” Carbin said.
