Brutally cold temperatures have frozen over vast parts of Niagara Falls, with snow and mist covering the surrounding area, creating a real life Frozen wonderland. According to NBC News, temperatures at Niagara Falls dropped to 13 below zero this week, and haven’t risen above freezing at all in February.
Although sections of the three waterfalls that make up the natural attraction appear to be entirely frozen, the Niagara River continues to flow below. The last time Niagara Falls completely froze over was in 1848, due to an upstream blockage.
Despite the freezing temperatures, the winter transformation has actually brought more tourists to the landmark to witness the marvel of Mother Nature firsthand. Forecasters say there will be plenty of time to witness the phenomenon.
Roughly 400 miles from Washington D.C., the drive takes approximately 7 hours. Road trip, anyone?
