Alberta man’s bowl of noodles freezes, suspends fork mid-air in frigid temperatures

An Alberta man has a whole new take on grabbing food from the frozen aisle.

Jonathan Scholes, who lives in Calgary, decided to demonstrate just how frigid it has been this past month by leaving a bowl of hot, boiling noodles outside.

His video showed noodles and a fork suspended in the air, hardened in place at -30 C on Feb. 10.

It was so cold in Calgary that steaming, hot noodles froze outside.

According to Scholes, it took about 10 to 15 minutes for the noodles to freeze solid.

This past February was one for the record books for many cities across Canada, including Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Winnipeg.

For Calgary, it’s the third-coldest February on record with mean temperatures around -19 C.

Calgary did not have a single “normal” temperature in February, meaning every high, low and mean temperature was below seasonal.
