its been a bit chilly

Niagara falls freezes over - incredible pics!!      <blockquote>               Niagara Falls comes to a halt AGAIN: Millions of gallons of cascading water is frozen in bitter temperatures

For the second time in what has been a frigid winter in the Northeastern United States, Niagara falls has come to an icy halt as the six million cubic feet of water that typically flow over the falls every minute has frozen over.

The flow of water over the falls typically can withstand icy temperatures like those that have frozen much of the country this winter, but Monday's high of 9 degrees Fahrenheit brought Niagara Falls to a standstill - and photographers were there to snap some stunning images of the frozen waterfall.

In January, another record-breaking cold front managed to freeze the mighty falls in a 'polar vortex' that turned the cascading water to ice - and affected about 240 million people in the U.S. and southern Canada.

No thaw is expected anytime soon, as temperatures at the western New York tourist attraction will dip below 0 degrees Fahrenheit Monday night through Tuesday morning.

Wow!  Those are beautiful pics!  It's definitely been a cold winter, but to be honest, it felt like a real winter this year.  Granted, I love winter and have been tired of these non-winters we've been having in S. ON.  But then again, I'm from NB and lived in Ottawa for years, so when you have perpetual November all winter, it sucks.  Glad it was truly winter this year.  Having said that, I am ready for the warmth and life of spring.  And ready to start gardening!

Ah yes, I have been playing around with growing some food indoors with some success.  AND, I will be starting to plant my spring seeds after I attend Seedy Saturday this weekend.  Can't wait!
