Niagara Falls is one place the deep freeze affecting the United States is as much seen as it is felt.
Mist from the surging waters has been freezing instantly on everything it touches, coating trees, walkways, cliffs and overlooks in a dreamy, brilliant white..Temperatures in the Niagara Falls area have been well below freezing for a while now, even dipping below zero (with much colder wind chills).Although everything around them freezes, the three waterfalls that make up the natural attraction between the United States and Canada continue to flow and churn up the frosty mist.
As the ice continues to build, photos of the falls will surely get even better in the coming days, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Twitter and Facebook for those sharing the view.
But don’t believe the internet rumors: The falls itself are not frozen solid. However, the area surrounding the rushing waters has been coated with thick frost and ice that makes the whole area look practically sparkling. This further proves that Niagara is not only a fun place to go in the summer, but also in the winter.
