    I was watching some of the WIRED’s Autocomplete Interviews and I thought it would be fun to see what some of the common searches are for Niagara Falls:

    Decent questions.

    I’m sure that all sorts of different attractions would love to have their names show up automatically!

    I would think that Niagara Falls is considered a waterfall.

    How much does it cost? You mean to buy all 3 waterfalls? I don’t think anyone could afford it! 🙂

    Nature gives Niagara Falls an icy new look

    From WKBW Channel 7 in Buffalo:

    If you thought it felt icy out there Friday, take a look at some of these stone-cold shots we took up in Niagara Falls!

    Trees, view finders and street lamps located near one of the most breath-taking sites in all of Western New York are covered in ice! Temperatures have remained below freezing over the past few days, allowing water droplets from the falls to accumulate and freeze on to objects such as trees, cars, railings, sidewalks etc…

    Niagara Falls still stunning in the dead of winter

    Although this was just posted recently, it is about a visit to Niagara Falls last winter.

    From MySanAntonio.com:

    … the highlight of our visit to Ontario was the trip to Niagara Falls, which is about 80 miles on Queen Elizabeth Way, or 90 minutes away.

    The bus ride by City Sightseeing Toronto was comfortable and filled with places to see before and after the trip to Niagara Falls with friendly tourists from several countries.

    But the anticipation of seeing the 180-foot Falls was all we could think about. Even the cold — about 15-20 degrees most days during our February trip – was not on our minds. We thought we were prepared for what we’d see, knowing the Falls area gets about 56 inches of snow a year and it doesn’t melt until spring.

    Everything was white. Snow and ice covered everything we saw. The walkway from the bus parking lot to the lodge near the Falls was covered in snow, but it was not slippery. It’s well-tended and appears to be frequently salted or plowed.

    The roar of the Falls is loud, with a tremendous amount of water flowing from Lake Ontario onto the Niagara River, but during the winter, portions of the Falls freeze, reducing the flow.
