    Bubbles at -18 Degrees in Minnesota


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     montevideomn and her friend wanted to experiment with bubbles in the incredibly cold temperatures in Minnesota. 'The extreme cold has limited us to how long we can spend outside. It is kind of like in the south with the extreme heat and people run from the air conditioning in their cars to the air conditioning in their house; in Minnesota it is so cold we run from our heated cars to the heated building. We learned that the extreme cold preserves bubbles. Whether it makes them stretchy, frozen, or fly it makes these simple things last longer. The bubbles flew a short distance, froze, and rolled on the ground towards the camera. Some bubbles even kept floating for ten minutes or more. While we were doing the bubble experiment in the morning before work we had individuals taking pictures of us with the bubbles saying it was very cool!'
