WASHINGTON — With temperatures dipping into the single digits around the D.C. region, WTOP’s Dave Dildine took it upon himself to conduct a bit of a cold-weather experiment.
It was 8.2 degrees Fahrenheit Wednesday night in Tenleytown, when Dildine set out with a mixture of dishwashing soap, water and a little sugar for crystallization.
“The wind was troublesome, so this time I added a little syrup for viscosity,” he said.
In a patch of snow, Dildine blew a bubble and watched as it rapidly crystallized.
