Water Turns to Snow Mid-Air
Meteorologist Eric Holthaus decided that he wanted to test the theory that hot water could turn to snow mid-air if the temperature was low enough. Watch as he throws a small pot of boiling water into the -21 degrees F chilled air, the result is spectacular.

Eric told Storyful: "Today was the coldest weather I've ever personally experienced, and the first time I've tried this trick. Sure enough, it works!"

Nah, this experiment didn't debunk the myth, all I see is steam from the hot water. Maybe I will try it myself!
