Flash Freeze: How Cold Was it Monday Afternoon?

Always up for an adventure, Patch Editor Ron Kremer puts on a cap and a heavy coat and heads outside to make like a mad scientist in a winter weather experiment.

In the name of science—and good fun—Patch Editor Ron Kremer braves the elements on Monday to see how fast he can turn a cup of boiling water into snow.

How fast can you turn a cup of boiling water into a mini-neighborhood snowstorm?

Faster than I can type this next sentence, trust me.

I boiled a cup of water—being the mad scientist that am I—and stepped outside on Monday afternoon into the Frozen Tundra that has taken up residence in the Chicago metro area. Then, I threw the water into air chilled by Mother Nature to minus-13 degrees and watched with child-like wonderment to see what would happen next.

Cue up the vocals: And hum a few bars yourself, "Let it snow, let it snow ..."
