As Utah’s Wasatch Front is beset with storms, you may be wondering: What does it look like to blow bubbles in freezing weather?
Luckily, a charming Canadian couple has the answer. In a video posted a few years ago — but getting a viral bump at the moment, probably because everyone is so cold — Ted Goossen and his wife blow bubbles in -49 degree weather. The bubbles float upward, but also kind of deflate and shrivel.
Of course, that’s because the air inside the bubbles contracts as it cools, causing the bubbles to collapse.
Utah temperatures over the next few days won’t dip as low as they did for Goossen, but they will be mighty chilly. So if you’ve got some bubble gum lying around, try the experiment yourself.
