This whole polar vortex is causing all kinds of craziness in the US. While; some incidents are funny, others are downright freaky. You ought to check out these half a dozen stories which wouldn’t happen if it wasn’t for these insanely low temperatures.
Prisoner Escapes Prison But Returns
Prison Break was cool, right? But imagine how much more fun it would be if a series was made on this guy named Robert Vick. We even have a title ready for it, if HBO wants it. It is…“Prison Back!”
What this genius of a man did was that he escaped the Kentucky prison he was incarcerated in, but it was so cold out there that he turned himself in after just one night on the chilly streets. Get yourself a blanket dude; don’t just walk back in there.
Even Hell Froze

Remember how they would make you believe that there is nothing but fire in Hell? Well, the temperature in the US these days is so low that even Hell has frozen over; at least the one in Michigan.
And The Lakes Too…
This is not rubble. This is the shore of Lake Superior, where water frosted and took this form.
Walk Over Swimming Pool
The gospels say Jesus could walk on water. Check out this pair of doggies who are treading on a swimming pool. It’s a miracle! Alert the clergy folks.
Yeah, the water is frozen, but whatever.
Driving Ban In Indiana
Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like. If you start up your own car and drive around a little in Indianapolis these days, it would be an offence. A complete driving embargo has been placed in the city so that the roads are used only for emergency vehicles.
Chicago’s Polar Bear Is Feelin’ It Too
When you have the word ‘Polar’ attached to your species name, it is a sign that the cold is not much of an issue. At least this urban cold shouldn’t bother you. But the resident polar bear of Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo would tell you that the ongoing cold wave is no joke. Even by its standards, it is freezing out there. The zoo’s spokeswoman Sharon Dewar recently told the press that the mercury dropped down so low on Monday that their ‘Lord Of the Arctic’ didn’t come out at all.
Indoors good, outdoors baaaaad.
So, if the convicts and the polar bears are choosing to stay inside, so should you. It’s a cold world out there.
