Mike Schulze says it was a "once in a lifetime" experience.

He was in a group of paddleboarders who often take to the Shrewsbury River to enjoy the sunrise and the sounds of nature.

On Sunday, they were joined by a small pod of dolphins.

The dolphins playfully swam alongside the paddleboards, popping out of the water, then diving beneath the boards.

Schultze said on Facebook he and fellow boarders were a bit concerned they would get knocked off by one of the dolphins because they were so close, but also said "we didn't mind.

The encounter lasted about 40 minutes, then boat traffic chased the dolphins away.

Schultze was able to capture a lot of the fun on video, and posted several clips to his Facebook page.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
