Cold enough at the Mount Washington Observatory that boiling water tossed in the air turns to snow instantly!

How cold? -34.8F Yeah, that’s cold.

The video was done earlier today by the Mount Washington Observatory Staff. The observatory is like a fallout shelter on the top of the mountain with some weather gear strapped on top. The staff has been known to do some wacky videos before, but it’ll be a lot more fun now that they’re posting them online.

Check out Water to Snow Round 1 which was done at a mere 22 below but with the aid of a 75MPH wind! It’s probably worth mentioning that Mount Washington is the location of the strongest wind gust ever recorded at a hasty 231MPH.
