How cold is minus 20 degrees really? Cold enough to freeze an egg sunny-side up. Funda Ray was making breakfast in Hibbing, Minnesota, when she got an idea to demonstrate just how dramatically the temperature had dropped outside.
"I sprayed the cookie pan with Pam and broke an egg on it, and in half an hour, I had a frozen egg," she said. Her husband shot photos, which she posted to CNN's iReport.
What a great name.
It IS cold, dayum cold aint it @ banasy?
Morning banasy and chrissy
I do not miss that cold up there at all. I truly sympathize with you. The last winter I spent in Detroit, we had a solid week of 18 below zero temps. That for me broke the bank. I headed south and never looked back.
You guys wrap and stay as warm as you can.
My husband and I purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters.
Winter was fast approaching and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation.
"If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared.
One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost.
My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up.
"For the past 30 years," he muttered, "they've gone to Florida for the winter."
That is hysterical!
@bobcat(iah)- smarty pants. lol The wind chill here is 6 degrees, wish I could fly south.
It Was So Cold that
Hitchhikers were holding up pictures of thumbs!
Roosters were rushing into Kentucky Fried Chicken and begging to use the pressure cooker!
A streaker froze in mid-streak! The town council just stuck a plaque on him and pretended he was a Greek statue until spring.
The squirrels in the park were throwing themselves at an electric fence!
This cold is caused by the ice caps melting and making us cold lol, or chinese industry making polution blocking sunlight lol- (but our polution is causing heat). Listen I mean it! ignore the weather- it's lieing to you! I swear – mother nature is the biggest denier- I hate mother nature! she probably voted for reagan anyway- ignore the cold weather it's a lie and a fraud! lol
It's amazing how when you put an egg on snow in freezing weather it freezes in, like, 30 minutes. Woah, that's crazy!
-20? That's cute. Come back to me when it's -40.
The southwest just finished record breaking low temps for at least 2 weeks...At least 4 days below freezing..
Now the cold blast is hitting the upper midwest & will move on to the east coast.. I don't see much change in temps since I was a kid, over 50 years ago..The thermometer goes up as well as down.
-20. My Scout troop camps outside in that. Albeit we're Canadian and we don't prepare our eggs like that.
Meanwhile, here in Florida, we have a cold-front alert...70s. No kidding :/
An egg has lots of water in it. What did she think would happen–and after 30 mins. no less. Please.
could this be global warming?
Really an egg?
