PHOTOS: We Can’t Get Enough of the Frozen Schuylkill River

But no, you REALLY shouldn’t try walking on the ice.

It is very cold outside. In case you need any additional evidence of that (other than, you know, the fact that Philly looks like it’s currently inside a snow globe), check out the Schuylkill River. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s frozen.

The ice is making our city look like a winter wonderland – or maybe just more like Boston or Montreal. Either way, it certainly makes us feel a whole lot tougher for enduring the deep freeze.

We’ve rounded up some of the best photos of the frozen Schuylkill for your viewing pleasure. Hopefully they’ll make you feel little better about the weather.

(Oh, and by the way, you really shouldn’t try to walk on the ice. It’s likely too thin and a recipe for disaster.)
