vaporizing water

One of the myths that Regis claims I have perpetuated over the years is that, on very cold days, you can throw a cup of boiling water into the air and it will vaporize before it hits the ground. Regis always scoffed at me and I couldn't find proof of it anywhere on the google. Tom and Betty called last night to say they'd done it, so first thing this morning, we filmed the proof. We probably should have had a better script, but this works. We boiled water in a tea kettle, Regis threw it high into the air over the garden, and I filmed and directed. You hear me say okay at then end. I should have said cut.

Oh Regis- Ye of little faith! Everyone knows that this works. I watched 2 different meteorologists do it on different news channels while I was exercising this morning. It was even on CNN news. They also had a guy in Minnesota pound a nail into a board with a banana that had sat out overnight. Now that I hadn't seen before.
