I goofed up the video on the first try because I got few drops of boiling water on my glove. Just an inch or so from where I held my phone. I won’t say whether I was more worried about the phone or about the mortal danger I’d put my skin into.
The mishap distracted me from actually watching the result of my experiment, so I decided on a redo. Don’t ask me what logic drove me to that conclusion.
But it was worth it. Right there in broad daylight, in the heart of Logansport, I threw boiling water into the air. And it turned to snow as fine as fairy dust.
