Water in -30C in Yellowknife, NWT

Via Scoop.itGeography Education
On a winter day in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, I boiled water and threw it in the air where it “evaporated”…

Okay, the water did not actually ‘evaporate’ in -30C temperatures as stated in the video.  As mentioned on G+, “upon being dispersed into the air, the latent heat in the water’s mass dispersed more easily and thus more quickly, rapidly cooling it to the outside temperature and causing the droplets to become tiny crystalized ice, or plainly put, powdered snow, light enough to be carried away in the wind.”  What a great demonstration of the properties of water!
