It isn’t uncommon to hear about extreme weather these days, but recent climate conditions seem to be trying to outdo each other lately. Move over, hurricanes – the polar vortex is now in town!
In case you haven’t heard, the polar vortex has been wreaking havoc across the midwestern United States. This kind of event happens when a band of very strong winds that are normally trapped high up in the atmosphere travel further down than usual.
What happens next is what you’ll see in the images below. You might want to bundle up before continuing.
