23 Jaw Dropping Images Of America Under Polar Vortex

Polar Vortex, the massive cold air whirling around the Arctic has become a matter of concern for people living in United States and Canada. Shattering all temperature records, Polar Vortex has resulted in the most extreme weather in decades. Temperatures in all 50 US states dipped below freezing point. The rare nationwide chill so far has taken 21 lives and affected millions in the American continent. On one side there are people who are badly affected by the the extreme chill and on the other hand there are people who are enjoying every bit of this sudden change in weather conditions.

Going out in open is life threatening, but still there are some ‘adventure-enthusiast’ who cared to snap some pictures for us to look. There are tons and tons of photographs that captured the bone freezing moments all across North America and Canada. The blast of extreme cold weather disrupted day to day but on the other hand created stunning scenes. Who would have thought that a sudden deep drop in the mercury could bring us a flood of pictures.

Below we have gathered some of the stunning pictures that are doing rounds on the internet.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
