Niagara Falls transformed into a winter wonderland after landmark freezes over

It’s cold out there. How cold is it? It’s so cold that parts of Niagara Falls are freezing!

A storm that worked its way across the country covered the Midwest in a blanket of snow and transformed the Northeast into a deep freeze. The rushing waters of Niagara Falls have been brought to a halt in certain sections.

People who were visiting Niagara Falls took pictures of the frozen waters on January 20.

These images are from Instagram user, @ingegroot and they show the awesome views the falls offer, even when they are partially at a standstill.

In an interview to CNN, Emma Grafham said she felt as if she were in ‘Elsa’s Castle’.

“There was even this set of stairs that were placed just outside the look-on spot and they had so much ice on them, it looked like Elsa had just cast her arm out and summoned up some stairs like she does in the movie,” she said.

The cold in the Northeast is not finished yet. It is expected to continue throughout the week.

New Englanders could expect to wake up on January 22 to temperatures that may feel as cold as 20° below zero! Throughout the Northeast, many areas will remain under a windchill advisory until the morning of January 23.

If you love cold weather, you are in luck. A new cold snap will move in over the weekend according to Michael Guy, a CNN meteorologist.

“The waves of cold air will continue for the next two weeks,” he said.
