Niagara Falls is currently covered in partial ice and it looks truly incredible...
Because right now, a winter storm is wreaking havoc in America...
And Texas is perhaps the worst affected.
According to The Guardian, professionals have noted that the heating of the arctic may be to blame for these crazy changes in the weather.
Especially for the snowstorms that have been brutally hitting the people of Texas.
They explained the situation:
"[Experts claim] there is evidence that the rapid heating of the Arctic can help push frigid air from the north pole much further south, possibly to the US-Mexico border."
Things have gotten so bad in the last month that people have been forced to evacuate their homes...
And due to the addition of heavy snowstorms and below-freezing temperatures, the state has been left completely powerless in most areas.
And not only that, but over fifty deaths have been reported so far...
And as temperatures continue to fall, this number is set to rise.
Texans are doing their best to push through this difficult period...

But with little to no options, some have been forced to make do with what they've got.
People have been taking to social media to share their bizarre new living situations during the unbearable temperatures...

This is how cold it is at my Apartment. As a Texan, yes, I'm certainly not built for this. I don't even care. https://t.co/FMt8imglJp— 𝐓𝐇𝐎𝐌𝐀𝐒 𝐁𝐋𝐀𝐂𝐊 ☩ (@𝐓𝐇𝐎𝐌𝐀𝐒 𝐁𝐋𝐀𝐂𝐊 ☩)1613436492.0
That had literally frozen to the ceiling and had icicles dangling down from it.
This is something that hasn't been experienced for decades...

And right now, people aren't quite sure what to do.
But the south isn't the only part of our country that's been affected.
Many parts of the north and Canada have also been hit by snowstorms and below-freezing temperatures... something that isn't as unusual in these regions.
This includes the magnificent Niagara Falls...
And unbelievably so, the iconic waterfall has partially frozen over which is truly the most stunning sight.
People have been blown away by the beauty of the frozen falls...

Niagara Falls has turned into a breathtaking winter wonderland...
Idk what I imagined a partially frozen Niagara Falls to look like, but it wasn’t this. Just beautiful. https://t.co/idbIITLV0m— Chloe Salsameda WJBF (@Chloe Salsameda WJBF)1614139457.0
And many tourists have been lucky enough to capture such an incredible phenomenon.
But being that it sits at the border of the U.S. and Canada, an ice- and frost-covered Niagara Falls is not an uncommon winter sight.
The falls themselves are too powerful to freeze, but the mist surrounding them tends to freeze in winter, covering everything within its reach in layers of ice.
Water going over the falls can also freeze, resulting in large sheets - sometimes forty feet deep - of ice below.
Ice bridges may appear when there's a long stretch of days with temperatures below zero, creating gorgeous formations that look almost like glaciers soaring several stories into the sky.
Temperatures in Niagara Falls, New York, were between twelve and thirty degrees Fahrenheit over the past weekend...
