Throwing Hot Water Into Cold Air (boiling water, freezing air)

It’s minus 15 so I decided to show what throwing a cup of boiling water does upon coming into contact with freezing air. Hot water on ice, or hot water in cold air, does strange things. If you’ve ever wanted to create your own cloud, or mini snowstorm, then this is how you do it. It also exemplifies the difference between cold water and hot water – hot water freezes much faster than cold water does, bizarrely. This also shows you how to make steam.When you live in a cottage in a small rural village in the middle of nowhere in Eastern Europe, and the Siberian sub-zero Winter just keeps on going and going, you have to find ways to entertain yourself. Next week I’ll show how to lick metal poles like Dumb and Dumber….

Warning – don’t try this at home as it does involve boiling water!

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
