Niagara Falls Ain’t Frozen! Canadian Falls Webcam Debunks Deep Freeze Myth Gone Viral

(Long Island, NY) Seriously, everyone needs to chill out. No pun intended. Rumor after rumor and Facebook post after Facebook post has indicated that Niagara Falls has completely frozen over. While it has certainly slowed to a point of major inactivity, it certainly hasn’t frozen over. Not to say that it’s never frozen over ever, it did back in 1911, where the Falls actually created a kind of “ice bridge” connecting both sides to one-another.
I don’t know who had the guts to walk over a Niagara Falls ice bridge, but I certainly wouldn’t do it, even if it was reported to be around 50 feet thick in certain spots. The Falls themselves are actually quite beautiful this time of year, with ice and snow clinging to it while water cascades over, as per the norm. While I wouldn’t exactly plan a trip to the Falls any time soon, it’s certainly worth seeing it for its natural beauty during the winter time.
Buffalo News also highlighted that the polar vortex isn’t the worst snow storm in history, either. The Blizzard of ’77 is regarded as being one of the most devastating and brutal snowstorms of all time, with individuals stranded and killed because of the horrific weather. So, everyone needs to calm down about the polar vortex. It’s not that bad.
Oh yeah, and stop throwing hot water into the air to watch it freeze. When the steaming hot water flies into your face, we aren’t laughing with you, we’re laughing at you.
