Polar Vortex Freezes Niagara Falls, Brings Ice Balls Into Lake Michigan [PHOTOS & VIDEO]


The recent polar votex has brought more than cold weather. The frigid temperatures have created unique weather phenomenons. From ice balls in Lake Michigan to freezing Niagara Falls.

Watch the ice boulders roll into the shores of Lake Michigan.

Although it’s not the first time, Niagara Falls froze during the polar votex.

I trump your frozen Niagara Falls with frozen Niagara Falls at night!

Although this was taken last winter, it’s still cool to watch what Mother Nature is capable of.  Watch ice being pushed in from the lake in Minnesota.
