These Photos During The Polar Vortex Prove Just How Cold It Really Is


This past week we announced the arrival of the polar vortex, which would bring bone-chilling temperatures to the midwest and northeastern parts of the United States. Some of the cold temperatures could even drop down to the southern area of the U.S. and we’re all feeling the winter chill!

Some people have taken to social media to document just how cold it is where they are. With some areas of the U.S. experiencing a -45-degree wind chill temperature, it’s no surprise that some items are literally freezing in place. Check these out!
