It’s only January!

Hell may not be freezing over but Niagara Falls sure is.

polar vortex weather condition hit Canada. It is a condition where differing pressure systems allow polar winds to blow southward and east bringing with them extremely cold temperatures.

Niagara Falls is nearly frozen over for the third time in 50 years.

Bundle up folks, it’s only January and be careful when you clear your snow away.






Nonna sings with the angels  now!
