Frozen Niagara Falls is Beautiful

The moment was captured in the form of photographs and it defied the imagination. The deluge of water cascading down the cliff was almost frozen in time. Niagara Falls started forming icicles and soon enough it was in a near solid state. Of course, some of the pictures are not real and the photographers who caught them on camera are relatively unknown. 

The most realistic one has mist surrounding the image thereby ruining its credibility. The extremely cold weather conditions on the border areas between North America and Canada caused this phenomenon. The temperature was about minus two degrees below zero. And the harsh and inclement climate brought malaise along with it to many people who had to stay indoors due to the danger of frostbite. 

Earlier pictures of Niagara Falls in a solid state date from 1911 and 1890. There are people walking on top of it. The problem with the Internet is that many people post false images as a prank. This has happened in the case of the frozen Niagara Falls too. Whereas the fact of the matter is that it never actually froze completely. 

It is simply not possible for such a huge quantity of water falling from such a height to totally freeze. The Niagara Falls also partially solidified in 1850. The obvious markers that have influenced this strange occurrence include a changing climate due to mankind’s habit of interfering with Mother Nature.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
