Record chills swept across the U.S. this week, dipping down from the arctic north. Photos speak more than words here, with commuters huddled behind balaclavas, water frozen mid-splash, plant life encased in ice and visions of stark white landscapes all around. Frozen weather tricks dominated the Internet, but maybe some folks’ common sense was, er, a little frozen too. Thankfully this coming week looks a lot warmer.
