Boiling water and bubbles at -20f.


The extreme cold up here leads to some fun outside.  I keep hearing about what happens when you blow bubbles in sub zero weather, viagra 60mg and what boiling water at that temp looks like when you throw it.  Al and I decided to do some of these experiments this morning when it was about 20 below zero and about negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit windchill.  The bubble one was actually the hardest, sildenafil mostly because of the wind blowing the bubbles away and popping them before I could get a photo!  We finally  found a good spot and got a few of them as they froze.  Frozen bubble frozen bubble 2 frozen bubble 3 PHOTO OF A FROZEN BUBBLE photo of a frozen bubble 2 Throwing boiling water to get steam steam from boiling water in sub zero temps Coffee in sub zero

We also threw a few pots of boiling water, and then a cup of hot coffee!  I think the hot coffee one is my favorite.  Hope everyone is staying safe and warm tonight!

    How did you keep the camera from “freezing” as well? I know you use good equipment but -20 is crazy cold. Just curious. Love the photos!

    Wow, these are brilliant photos. I’ve never been in temperatures that low. In the UK at the moment it’s just very wet and windy. A dented bubble looks so strange. Thanks for sharing them. Ann.

    Hi Ed!

    I just keep the camera at a consistent temp – I even leave it outside if I am coming back in. The worst thing you can do is bring the camera in if you’re going to head outside again. The condensation builds up and causes it to freeze. Hope you are well!
