And we're back from our break! Hope everyone had a great holiday season! A huge cold snap has taken over most of the U.S., and with cold weather comes a lot of interesting pins, one of which is an image of a bubble freezing over. I had at least a half dozen fans send me this image asking me "This can't be true, can it?"
Well, actually, yes! I know, I was skeptical too, but it turns out that yes, bubbles can and do freeze if the temperature is low enough.
There are a few tips to doing this though. First off it needs to be COLD outside. I'm not talking barely 32 degrees, it needs to be really cold outside. According to this great youtube video that shows a bubble freezing, he says that it needs to be at least 8 degrees for it to begin to freeze. Even then, it does take some time for the bubble to begin to freeze. You can read more about it and see some amazing photos here.
So has anyone tried this yet? I live in the Pac NW where it doesn't get that cold, and we were spared the cold snap that has moved across the country this week, so I haven't been able to test it. Share your stories and photos over with us on facebook or twitter.
