Greetings, my brave reader.
The last weekend of February, Niagara Falls saw something many people of the area think it doesn’t happen very often at this time of year: a large number of visitors. Niagara Falls were transformed into a marvellous frozen winter wonderland due to record-breaking temperatures for over a month.

But the river is still flowing below the ice, which won’t be melting any time soon, since temperatures continue to drop below freezing.

News reporting the frozen situation of Niagara have been travelling for a month and so people carried on visiting the place to take a look at the amazing sight. A combination of the “polar vortex” –a large-scale cyclone circling the planet’s poles, there’s one for each pole- and deep winter freezing temperatures has culminated into freezing over large parts of the Niagara Falls over the past two years.

The images that document this spectacular landscape are nothing sort of spectacular themselves. So, if you’re having trouble reaching the Niagara Falls, my brave reader, to take a look first hand, why don’t you indulge yourself with the photos below?
