While Polar Vortex Part 2 has been a bit milder than the first blast in January, the week-long freeze with temps in the teens and twenties has left its mark on the Long Island Sound.

Giving new meaning to the term "beach weather," locals across the area are grabbing their cameras to share photos on Twitter and Instagram of the frozen, or at the very least icy, waters.

See our gallery above of photos shared on social media from both the Long Island and Connecticut shores this past week.

And here's the good news: The National Weather Service says Friday temps will finally break the freezing mark, and even approach 40 degrees in areas.

It's still not beach weather, though.

A United Nations document on "climate change" that will be distributed to a major environmental conclave envisions a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes — all under the supervision of the world body. Global Warming is a huge scam to transfer wealth. The Rich always get richer. All of you who voted for this and believe in the Global Warming fiary tale deserve what you get.
