Before the warm up I experimented with frozen bubbles!

How did you make these perfect bubbles?
The bubble mix is 1 1/2 C water. 1/2 C light karo syrup and 1/4 C liq. dish soap.
Using a drinking straw dip into solution and blow bubble near a soft landing spot (pile of snow)
this works best oThen VERY STILL days. Any breeze will shatter bubble or blow it away. ALSO, it must be very cold out. Well below freezing. Like below 20, near ZERO. This day was about 12 degrees. Camera hated it. Battery would say no charge after a few minutes. Fingers froze, too.

@baymule see above for answer to you question too.

It may be YEARS before it gets cold enough here to blow frozen bubbles!
