15 Times Running Water Was No Match For The Crazy Cold Weather In The US

It’s a bad time to be a fountain.

Mother Nature’s New Year’s gift to the U.S. appears to be cold weather not suitable for humans. From the beautifully icy Niagara Falls to frozen fountains as far south as Texas, running water is definitely no match for these record low temperatures. 

See how this extremely cold weather is affecting waterfalls, rivers and even car washes across the country.
