Cold Snap

Wow it's cold outside!! We're having quite the "cold snap" here in Interior Alaska. It's making it hard to get out and about with the kids. The temps are extremely low and the ice fog is thick. Here are some websites to check out:

Coldest Places in the World (This doesn't have ALL weather stations in the world)

No end in sight to Interior Alaska Cold Spell from the Fairbanks News-Miner.

Here is a You Tube video taken a few days ago here in North Pole, Alaska (not by me or anyone I know but I found it online). It shows what happens when you throw water up in the air when it's this cold out and it also shows ice inside the windows (which I have at my house also). I might have to try this experiment myself...

Have you tried blowing bubbles (like with a kid's bubble wand/bubbles) outside? We used to do that in Iowa. The bubbles shatter in midair.
