The polar vortex is warping parts of the Midwest into a frozen wonderland.

Photos captured by an Ohio resident showed a chilling phenomenon happening near Lake Erie. Lamp posts in the area froze over in the frigid temperatures, causing massive icicles to form around the structures.

The Midwest has been experiencing some of the coldest weather ever recorded in the region. Temperatures are expected to rise slightly by Friday morning.
