Niagara Falls Frozen in Time as Polar Vortex Blankets US
People visiting one of Canada's most popular tourist spots got to see a rare site this week. The polar vortex that has hit many parts of Canada and the U.S. caused chilly temperatures which froze parts of Niagara Falls. The normally fast-moving water stopped flowing.

Parts of the Niagara Falls, located between the US and Canada, have frozen because of the Arctic chill that's gripped North America this week.

The frigid temperatures may wreak havoc with travel plans and force flight cancellations, but it also makes for some stunning photos. Niagara Falls resident Ted Williams shot these next two photos Wednesday night from the Canadian side of the Falls, overlooking the U.S. side.

What you're looking at is Niagara Falls encased in ice. You can see the Falls, still roaring in the back, but pretty much everything else near the Canada-US border has slowed down to a glacial pace.

The photo comes courtesy of Google Earth Pics who tweeted out the photo on Tuesday just as much of North America was contending with the fallout of a polar vortex, a system of tundra-like cold air that descended on the area to bring abnormally cold weather.

But while many may be bitter about the sub-zero temperatures, the timing couldn't be more perfect for the area. Niagara Falls is currently in the midst of its Ontario Power Generation Winter Festival of Lights, which embraces the cold and paints the waterfall and the surrounding area in a colourful winter wonderland. Travellers interested in seeing the frozen Falls at the festival can do so until Jan. 31, assuming you don't turn into a human icicle first.
