Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

冬的纪录(二)尼亚加拉瀑布 – 续

Just got an email from a friend, she attached the photos which really caught my eye, here is:

 

 

   : The year was 1911 and that year it was so cold that Niagara Falls did freeze over. Now, if you have ever been to the Falls, you will understand the magnitude of this ever happening. That water is such a powerful force, it is hard to believe this could ever happen. But it did, only once. You can actually see the people standing on the ice at the top of the Falls.

 : I have been to the Falls many times and there is no possible way that the horse shoe falls could completely freeze over at the speed they flow. Maybe the American falls.

 

 

  The American Falls have frozen over on six occasions since the keeping of records began. Each were attributed to ice jams that have actually curtailed the flow of the American Falls to mere trickles.
 
 :  It’s hard to believe with so much water rushing down the Falls that it actually froze, well, there is no words can express such a work of art done by Mother Nature . Breathtaking!

    Uh-ha, thought I\’ve already read some articles — the facts about Niagara Falls, but still couldn\’t believe that the Horse Shoe Falls could COMPLETELY  freeze over at the speed they flow @_@.
    Maybe the American Falls ~~~
