Fire and Ice 3

Philadelphia firefighters work the scene of an overnight blaze in west Philadelphia on February 16, as icicles hang from where the water from their hoses froze. Bone-chilling, single digit temperatures have gripped the region, prompting the closure of all parish and regional Catholic elementary schools in the city of Philadelphia.

Fire and Ice 1

Ice encases a traffic light and two fire fighting ladders, formed from water used to fight a fire, near the scene of an overnight blaze in west Philadelphia on February 16.

Fire and Ice 2

Vehicles and a building are covered with ice as firefighters worked to keep a warehouse fire down in the Brooklyn borough of New York on February 1.

Fire and Ice 4

Beacon Street in Boston on February 16.

That last one wasn’t the result of fire hoses, but it’s awesome. Beside the threat of ice and snow collapsing roofs, the huge icicles are potential killers down below.

Mixed Reactions

This image encapsulates everything I ever felt about Saint Valentine’s Day when I was that age.

“Yeah. I kinda like you. I like you a lot. I love you. Kinda. Now go away. Now come back. I still like you. Kinda. Don’t tell anybody. I hate you. Okay, not. Sorta. Go away. Come here. Yeah, I kinda like you.”
