While not completely frozen to the riverbed, Niagara Falls is putting on a display of winter beauty from the latest polar vortex.
The upper part of the waterfall has completely frozen in the bitter temperatures, creating the impression for the second time this winter that the legendary waterfall has completely frozen.
The water pressure keeps the falls from freezing to the riverbed meaning that under the stacks of ice the river continues to rage. However, none of the running water can be seen flowing over the falls as sheets of ice blanket the rocks and hills surrounding the falls.
Temperatures in the area have been hovering between zero and 9 degrees this week.
The cold freezing the falls is not the only record cold. In Iowa, Des Moines broke a low temperature record set in 1884. Atlantic City set a record not only for March 3rd but also for the entire month of March with 2 above zero, breaking a record dating back to 1874. Several towns around Washington DC also shattered records.
