Niagra Falls has frozen again! (PICS)

For the second time in what has been a frigid winter in the Northeastern United States, Niagara falls has come to an icy halt as the six million cubic feet of water that typically flow over the falls every minute has frozen over.

 

The flow of water over the falls typically can withstand icy temperatures like those that have frozen much of the country this winter, but Monday's high of 9 degrees Fahrenheit brought Niagara Falls to a standstill - and photographers were there to snap some stunning images of the frozen waterfall. 

 

In January, another record-breaking cold front managed to freeze the mighty falls in a 'polar vortex' that turned the cascading water to ice - and affected about 240 million people in the U.S. and southern Canada.

 

No thaw is expected anytime soon, as temperatures at the western New York tourist attraction will dip below 0 degrees Fahrenheit Monday night through Tuesday morning.

 

Frozen: Lights that usually reflect the water of Niagara Falls illuminate the ice after it froze over on Monday

 

Rare: It is uncommon for the rushing water to freeze over the Falls, but it has happened twice so far this winter

 

Icy: A man is pictured walking in front of the partially frozen American side of the Falls as subfreezing temperatures freeze the Northeast

 

Take two: The Falls has frozen twice this winter. In January when a polar vortex gripped north America, the American Falls froze over

 

Bundle up: People walk along the U.S. side of the Falls bundled up to protect against the subfreezing temperatures

 

Take two: This is the second time Niagara Falls have frozen over this winter, which is rare for the western New York tourist attraction

 

Brrr: The temperatures at the Falls were at a high of 9 degrees F on Monday, with a low of -1

Beautiful: Mist rises over the Horseshoe Falls section of Niagara Falls during subfreezing temperatures

Frozen: Some water continues to flow over the Falls despite the frigid temperatures

Mist: Mist rises above the partially frozen Niagara Falls in subfreezing temperatures

Horseshoe: The Horseshoe Falls are almost completely frozen over and mist rises above the icy water

Eerie: As the freezing temperatures grip the natural wonder, plumes of mist billow from the water, creating an eerie atmosphere

Gorgeous: Lights illuminate the frozen Falls as temperatures drop into single digits

Solid: Parts of the mighty Falls are frozen solid thanks to the subfreezing temperatures Monday

Big freeze: The Falls before temperatures plummeted and the big freeze took hold for a second time this winter

Well I thought the Canadian side was the bigger tourist attraction, and I think it's because you get a very good view of horseshoe falls in the corner from Canada.

So they have the better side, but we get a better view of it.

would be cool to see that all break up

When we went on a day tour there a few years ago the tour guide literally stopped at about 15 different spots so we could take pics, on both sides. It looked cool but not so great that we had to capture it from every fucking angle possible. Phone Post 3.0
