A cold cold day

Science experiment on a bitterly cold day

Woke up this morning to a sunny but bitterly cold day -39°C. Ouch. Decided to test out an idea I had with the kids. We boiled up a kettle and then stepped out back and tossed a few cups to the sky. Poof!! Instant fog. Very cool. We tried to colour one of the cups but that didn't amount to much.

Later that same afternoon I was getting cabin fever again so I headed out for a two hour ski in the Greenbelt. It was still bitterly cold but that just made the hot chocolate taste that much better. Cheers.
