Sometimes it seems like the UK Daily Mail is more on top of our stuff than U.S news sources.

Yep, Daily Mail is one of my sources I check daily. They have less filters there.

Now that's just, um, terrible. Tell me, do you use the approved light bulbs? And if so, when they die do you make sure to break them in the bottom of the trash can so some environweenie will develop bovinations over it??.. ;-)

(How did we survive all those years of broken fluorescents before they invented hazmat cleanup crews???)

Digging further finds this info:

THE NUMBER ONE question everyone asks about this set of images is, "Does Niagara Falls ever really freeze over like this?" And the answer is yes. During an extended winter cold snap a hardened crust of ice can accumulate over parts of the falls — American Falls in particular — creating an amazing, naturally-formed ice sculpture, if you will, that has been known to reach a thickness of 50 feet. Neither the river nor the falls ever freezes solid, mind you. The water continues to flow beneath the ice at all times, albeit reduced to a mere trickle on rare occasions when ice jams block the river above the falls.

I’m sure that the goridiots are saying that Niagara Falls freeze this year is due to “man made climate change”, so I wonder what their reason was for the freeze in 1911. probably back then it was just a really cold natural winter.

I found a bunch of pictures of "Frozen Niagara Falls" last year, and here they are. They weren't Reuters.

I read about Annie Edson Taylor recently too.

On the FReepathon thread, I think?

She found going over the falls to be a harrowing experience and didn’t recommend it.

Won’t faze ‘em, Niagara Falls freezing over. I think the entire Great Lakes could freeze solid and they’d still be true believers.

It seems that possibility is not all that far-fetched!
