Winter won't quit. We've come across more than a few dramatic visuals and oddball stories amid the extreme cold, from frozen ice runways, to slushy waves, to an oddball story about a man and his "Loo-cy" toilet plow. And did you see the ice statue that looks just heavenly? 

If you feel like riding belly-down, head first on a sled the size of a throw rug, go to Lake Placid, New York.

Planes are landing on the only approved ice runway in the lower 48 states, on New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee. 

Surf's up in Nantucket, where low temperatures gave the water the consistency of a 7-11 Slurpee.

What do you see in this icicle?

NBC 4 New York shot this chopper video of ice floating on the Hudson River in New York City.

A drone over Niagara Falls captured this stunning view of the iced over landmark.

One Massachusetts town, Somerville, hired a company to shoot video from drones high above the city. The footage will be used to help clear snow from roofs that could be in danger of collapsing. 

In Rockville, Maryland, a man attached a plow to a motorized toilet to help clear snow.

One of the most dramatic visuals from the storm has been a geyser at Letchworth State Park in upstate New York that froze over. It became a five-story tall "ice volcano."

How long would you guess it took to freeze a T-shirt in freezing temperatures?

In Frederick, Maryland, Bradley Stelzer made a time-lapse video of a 12-inch-tall wine bottle getting covered by snow. He shot the video with his iPad Air between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Feb. 21.

If you don't have a sled, sometimes, a bucket will do in Texas.

Here's a look at other dramatic images of extreme weather since the year began.
