It’s a term that literally sends shivers up and down our collective spines – Polar Vortex.
During last week’s deep freeze we saw records temperatures, schools shut down for days, businesses closed, natural gas rationing, and how well our windows were actually winterized. In addition to discomfort and even hardship, the extreme weather created some extreme conditions which were caught on camera and shared.
On the social media/news/blog website Reddit, “Redditors” following the subReddit, rMichigan, shared some of their photos of the remarkable weather. From the gorgeous to the humorous to the ominous, here are a few glimpses of the recent “coldpocalypse” from around our state.
