The East Coast was slammed this week by a “bomb cyclone” weather phenomenon. A “bombogenesis” is a low-pressure weather system similar to a hurricane. In addition to freezing temperatures, the storm brought snow, ice, and strong winds up and down the coast and into Canada.

The weather left Niagara Falls, which lie both in upstate New York and in Canada, looking like a Winter wonderland. The temperatures dove low enough to freeze running water, causing parts of the falls to appear stuck in midair. The stunning photos prove that no matter what time of year it is, this natural wonder is completely beautiful.
