Niagara Falls partially frozen as bitter cold continues
NBC News: A partially frozen Niagara Falls was seen this weekend as bitter cold temperatures continue to hit the area.
The National Weather Service says “unseasonably cold temperatures more typical of January will prevail east of the Rocky Mountains for the next few days keeping winter around for a while longer.”
Elsewhere, the Great Lakes are now more than 90.5% ice covered, nearing a record, Detroit Free Press reports.
Much of the East was hit by a winter storm early Monday, closing federal offices in Washington, D.C., and canceling more than 2,000 U.S. flights.

I’ve been there to see the ice formations before. It’s pretty mind-boggling.
