D is for Dry Ice.............
A bucket of fog - created by a small piece of dry ice.
About 10 minutes after we opened the cooler that had been shipped overnight to us, this white fog began emerging from the top.
Once exposed to the warm air in the room, the ice began to melt - in the form of fog.
We removed it to a bucket outside, and watched as it slowly began to crawl up the inside, swirling and rising until it reached the top.
Then it ever so slowly
began to spill over the edge and creep down the outside with it's ghostlike fingers.
It was only a very small piece, but it took hours for it to "melt".
Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide and is used as a coolant - in our case, to keep food solidly frozen when it was shipped to us.
It did it's job perfectly, and supplied us with entertainment as well.
This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
