Yes, a polar vortex is a real thing and currently happening over the United States NorthEast. A photo was posted on Twitter with the claim it was taken today of a lighthouse on Lake Michigan. The photo really makes clear the effect of a Polar Vortex. The photo was taken by professional photographer John McCormick and just recently called out as “Old” and in fact not taken today, but a year ago.
Below is a photo taken of the same location earlier today. Big deal, looks the fucking same, just one is a better photo. They both get the point across. Everybody’s always gotta call everyone out on shit, and most of the time that shit doesn’t really matter. However, the photo Tweeter could have easily said this photo is from a year ago, but gets the point across on what condition the lighthouse is in today.
