The brutally cold temperatures gripping much of the U.S. have hit Niagara Falls. While the falls have not been totally cut off by the deep freeze, the cold weather has arrested some of the water in glorious, massive icicles. Temperatures haven’t risen above freezing at all in February, according to NBC News meteorologist Dylan Dreyer.
The flow of water actually slows in winter. In summer, 40.68 million gallons of water tumble over the falls per minute, according to NBC News. In winter, that number drops to almost half — 22.71 million gallons per minute.
Below are some amazing photos of the frozen falls.
