This may be the coldest week of the winter for northern United States

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.

    I poured water on my sidewalk and it froze in 25 minutes. If the egg froze instantly it would've been an interesting story.

      Water is a normal thing to experiment with when it's cold out, an egg, not so much. Jealous much?

    If you ever lived in Alberta, Canada, you would've not found that "cool"
