It's So Cold, This is What Happens to Boiling Water

It is so freakishly cold in Rochester that one, if they felt so inclined, could make their own snow.

Not that we need any more flurries, but bear with us.

With temps hovering at about -7 degrees in Rochester Hills with a wind chill at a cool -29, the conditions are perfect for a cool science experiment.

Simply have an adult warm a cup or pot of water to a boil or near-boil, step outside and, making sure the wind isn't blowing toward you, toss the water into the air. It should instantly transform into a cloud of snow and float to the ground.

Similarly fun experiments can be made by blowing bubbles into the frigid air and seeing the bubbles instantly freeze.

With classes canceled Tuesday, we figured the kids were due for a science lesson.

It would have been better to do this during the day. After you threw the water, could not see anything but how dark it is in your yard.
