Mother Nature’s New Year’s gift to the U.S. appears to be cold weather not suitable for humans. From the beautifully icy Niagara Falls to frozen fountains as far south as Texas, running water is definitely no match for these record low temperatures.
See how this extremely cold weather is affecting waterfalls, rivers and even car washes across the country.
Even #Florida is seeing the effects of the country’s cold weather snap. Resident Natalie Kirkland captured this frozen fountain in #Pensacola. https://t.co/BjNKuxQnwg@newnewspagepic.twitter.com/7vkaOeGWsw— Breaking News (@newnewspage) January 2, 2018

One of our volunteers took this photo of a frozen Glen Falls on Lookout Mountain. If you’re visiting the park during this cold snap please be safe and prepared - dress warm and let somebody know your hike route and expected return time. pic.twitter.com/IC7e0fVu8D— ChickChattNMP (@ChickamaugaNPS) January 2, 2018

It’s been cold, and it’s about to get colder. This system off the East coast has potential to break records. The waves are frozen. pic.twitter.com/nMQnzl35Mv— Robin. (@specimenq5) January 2, 2018
