What happens when boiling water is thrown into -31-degree temperatures? (video)

It was cold today. So cold that water immediately freezes when you throw it in the air. The Elkhart Truth staff knows this because we tried it and took a video.

After a snow emergency was declared for Elkhart County on Sunday night, all schools and most businesses were shut down Monday.

Here at The Elkhart Truth, our reporting staff came to work in order to bring you valuable information about roads, travel and other safety-related stories, but we also found some time for a little science experiment.

We encourage you to try this at home as long as there's an adult around if you're too young to be handling boiling water and as long as you bundle up and don't stay out in the elements too long. All you have to do is heat water to a boil, then go outside and toss it in the air. We used a squirt gun because we saw some people do it on YouTube and it looked cool.
