Bone-chilling temperatures turn Niagara Falls into icy winter wonderland
The Arctic blast that swept across North America all weekend resulted in breathtaking photos of what appeared to many to be a frozen waterfall.
Though the falling water didn't actually freeze completely, the chilling temperatures reportedly turned the spray to ice stones once exposed to the air. The resulting visage created a spectacular scene that Twitter users said looked like something out of "Narnia."
According to The Weather Channel, the temperature of Niagara Falls was around 8 degrees Fahrenheit at noon on New Year's Eve. Temperatures aren't expected to get much higher than the teens for the coming week, The Buffalo News reported.
This isn't the first time the falls have experienced such winter tint, though. One famous photograph from 1890 shows the falls frozen so densely that some people were reportedly able to cross on ice bridges.
