Frozen jeans stand by a road in Minneapolis, Minnesota, US. An area resident placed the icy pants at different spots in the city. The photos soon went viral and kicked off a viral trend on social media.


As China's week-long cold wave continues, residents are finding time to take in the icy scenery and chill out in the nation's lowest temperatures in decades.


Images posted on social media show just how cool China has become, including pictures of iced food, clothes and even people's frozen makeup after parts of China saw lows plummet to -47 C.


A Weibo user posted two photos of a raw egg on Sunday that had completely frozen through.


"Check this out! Eggs shipped from Beijing are now frozen. I feel bad for friends in the capital," she wrote, adding several laughing emojis.


Photos of towels as hard as cardboard, frozen water pipes and even a pet turtle encased in ice also made the rounds on social media.


In the US, which also braced for strong blizzards this weekend, skiers took to the slopes outside Washington DC on Saturday.



Two pairs of frozen blue jeans were seen on display on the front lawn of Tom Grotting on Columbia Parkway on 

Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016 in Minneapolis, Minn. Grotting says he started putting out frozen jeans "for no good reason."

Tom Grotting of Minneapolis, Minnesota, grabbed attention on Facebook for freezing pants and standing them up around his neighborhood, inspiring many in both the US and China to do the same.

Animals are also finding ways to deal with the drop in temperature. Monkeys in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province, are descending from the mountains surrounding the city in search of food, the West China City Daily reported Sunday.


China's national weather service issued an orange alert Sunday for the spate of extreme weather. According to the National Meteorological Center, temperatures dropped 10 to 13 degrees on Sunday morning in many parts of North China, the Xinhua News Agency reported.
