What happens when you blow bubbles and it is less than 10 degrees out? They freeze! Thomaston Times Associate Editor Ashley Biles tried the experiment Monday night at home with no luck of getting the bubbles to last long enough to freeze. She braved the cold again Tuesday morning and was finally able to get a bubble to freeze on the warehouse door at the Thomaston Times office. In the pictures you can see the bubble just as it has frozen, and then the ice ring that is left once it pops. A quick Google search suggests that the bubbles will freeze anytime it is below 32 degrees outside, however the colder it is the better chance you have of it working. The experiment also seems to work best on a cold hard surface and once blown, it takes a few seconds for the bubble to actually freeze. Temperatures are not expected to get above the freezing mark until sometime Wednesday afternoon, so grab your bubbles and try it for yourself! Post your pictures to The Thomaston Times Facebook page.
