In a woody region near the dog park, the world was dressed in a lacey winter gown. It is beautiful, but it sure was cold. When hubby and I went out to pick up our new glasses, I had him drive me along the river to take a couple of photos.
In 2007, this is what Niagara Falls looked like and it wasn't as cold that year as it is today. I wonder what the Falls look like right now. If you look closer, you will see the piles of ice at the bottom of the Falls. They are beautiful in winter, especially at night when the lights are on. However, as cold as it is here today, I have no desire to visit Niagara Falls. There is always mist coming off the water as it thunders into the abyss and it would be colder there.
Tonight hubby is going to freeze his hiney off. It is to be even colder. -25 feeling like minus thirty. That is -13 Fahrenheit, feeling like -22. We have not had temperatures this cold since 2005 and it is to be even worse tomorrow, according to Toronto news at 6.
If you are in one of the provinces or states that are experiencing this deep freeze, stay inside unless you absolutely have to go out. Frostbite and hypothermia can set in quickly in this type of weather and if you have to go out, be sure to dress in lots of layers, wear a hat, gloves and scarf. Be sure to have an emergency kit in your car, a flashlight with good batteries, an extra set of new batteries and an insulated blanket. If you breakdown, do NOT leave your car.
Stay warm and safe and enjoy the beauty of the season. ~Blessings, Mary~
