Niagara Falls Has Frozen


The American Falls shown from Niagara Falls

The United States side of Niagara Falls is pictured, in spectacular frozen cascades, in Ontario, Canada, on Jan. 8. The frigid air and “polar vortex” that affected about 240 million people in the US and southern Canada in recent days is expected to subside during the second half of this week.

It has been so cold that Niagara Falls actually froze. The photo is from the online edition of Der Spiegel with further credit to Reuters.
