Forget about visiting the North Pole. You can just hop on a plane to Chicago!
The "Polar Vortex" is sending the Midwest into the deep freeze zone.
You better take cover! The record-breaking sub-zero temps swept over Chi town and steamed up Lake Michigan! The so-called "Chi-Beria" clocked in at a record -11, the coldest in the city's history. Apparently it's colder on planet earth than on Mars.
Want more proof? It is so brutally cold that you can actually see vapor rise from the frozen lake. It almost looks unreal.
