Niagara Falls Partially Freezes Over: Images

01.10.14 | Bob Price

The record-breaking cold spell in the U.S. this week actually froze parts of Niagara falls. While it did not totally freeze over, there were some spectacular ice formations on both the American and Canadian sides. Historians say there are only a handful of occasions in history in which the falls really did freeze over-- all were the result of ice jams on the Niagara River and all were on the American side of the falls. It happened in 1909, 1936, 1938, and most recently in 1949.
