It's so cold in Minnesota...
Or here's a lowbrow science experiment you *can* do at home. 1.) Bring water to a boil. 2.) Pour some boiling water in a cup. 3.) Take it outside. 4.) Fling the water in the air. (Taking care to hang onto the cup and fling the water *away* from anyone's face.) 5.) Watch it turn into a cloud of snow before it hits the ground!
Sunday night, we also rediscovered the principle that if you put the beer out on the deck to cool it down, you'd better keep an eye on it, because bottles turn to beersicles very quickly. More entertainingly, it seems the pressure keeps the beer liquid, and when you crack the cap and relieve the pressure, what appeared to be a bottle of liquid instantly becomes a bottle of ice.
How about you? Got a favorite cold-weather story?
