PHOTOS: Philly Transformed Into a Giant Ice Rink Last Night

And no, you’re not the only one who wiped out.

ICYMI – or in case you haven’t yet wiped out like the rest of us – Philly transformed into a giant ice skating rink last night.

Just as forecasters warned, freezing rain, sleet and frigid temps brought a thin sheet of ice to city streets and sidewalks (and railings … and cars … and gross, exhaust-stained snow). It was, and still is, treacherous out there – so use caution when walking or driving.

Here, some of the iciest pics for you to peruse while you look forward to warmer weather this weekend. (And remember to walk like a penguin if you encounter more ice on Tuesday.)
