We all get excited when the forecast predicts some snowfall in our area. We actually look forward to it. However, in some cases, a little snowfall can turn into a huge disaster and our expectations turn into a nightmarish reality. In this instance, we’re talking about the infamous Polar Vortex which started on the January 30th in some areas of the US and left an enormous amount of disaster in almost everyone’s home.
Here at Bright Side, we gathered some pictures that portray how freezing this Polar Vortex was.
