The Great Lakes, on the border of Canada and the United States of America, are partially surrounded by snow.

Cold temperatures have caused parts of them to ice over, as seen in the close-ups of Lakes Erie, Huron and Michigan.

To the right, clouds from a snowstorm over the East Coast are visible.

The storm hit the southeastern states on Sunday, causing many problems such as power outages and automobile accidents, reported NBC News, as the region is not accustomed to dealing with such extreme weather.

The storm then progressed to the northeastern states on Monday, causing more car crashes and between 8 and 12 inches of snow in New England.
