Lake Ontario In The Cold Is Pretty Much Frozen Beauty Perfected (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The polar vortex may be a thing of the past, but a look at your weather app might convince you otherwise.

Earlier this week, much of Ontario was dealing with temperatures dipping well below negatives — temperatures low enough to make just about anyone visiting the city want to wrap themselves up in a blanket and never leave their room.

But if that were the case, they'd be missing out on this:

This is Lake Ontario, one of Canada's great lakes that's sometime's not so great for swimming during the summer. But hey, at least it looks absolutely splendid in the cold and given how Toronto is on track for one of the coldest winters in 25 years, according to City News, the lake's never looked so good.

So don your boots, or skates at the National Post suggests, and brave the cold to see what you'll missing. Just make sure you also bundle up.
