When temperatures dip below freezing, we are used to certain things freezing. Our hair, windshield wipers, pipes, ponds, streams — these are all no match for Mother Nature in such extreme conditions.
Still, there are plenty of bodies of water that are just too big and powerful to succumb to freezing conditions. The ocean, large rivers, and places like Niagara Falls are usually exempt from freezing over.
However, the current cold snap North America is experiencing has led to a major exception to this rule. In other words, the mighty Niagara Falls has gotten a wintry makeover that makes the new eighth wonder of the world almost unrecognizable.
Most of the time, the spectacle is blanketed in a mist — created by the 3,160 tons of water that flow over the falls every second.
