From the unexpected snowfall in the Sahara Desert to the eyelashes getting froze in world’s coldest village, the news of extreme cold is coming from across the world.
However, closer home China is also facing extreme cold and to authenticate this, two videos have become viral on the internet which shows egg cracked on a metal surface freezing within seconds and a cup of instant noodles are seen freezing within seconds in China’s Huzhong district which is the coldest town in the country.
One of the videos shows a woman cracking open a raw egg on a flat surface outside. After a few seconds of being exposed, the yolk and the white harden with a layer of ice on top it. The woman taps on the egg to show that it is indeed frozen.
The video was posted on China's equivalent of YouTube "YouKu".
In a similar video posted by People's Daily China on YouTube, a cup of steaming hot instant noodles freeze and turn into a frozen solid because of the sub-freezing temperatures. The frozen noodles stand on their own, even balancing a pair of chopsticks on them.
