While some Americans and Canadians huddle together indoors under blankets as they wait for the Polar Vortex to ease – an ingenious few have used the Big Chill to their advantage.
Mad scientists have begun popping up all across the US and Canada all with one aim – to showcase the cool and slightly wacky things you can do in the cold weather.
One mother and son decided to take their party outside – and blew bubbles into the Arctic air to see the effect the cold would cause.
The verdict? Instead of popping, the bubbles froze over into glassy baubles that crackled like thin glass.

The result is all kinds of fizzy awesome.
