Forkful of Spaghetti Freezes Mid-Air as Sub-Zero Temperatures Hit Pittsburgh

A forkful of pasta froze in Pittsburgh on Saturday, December 24, as “dangerous” sub-zero temperatures swept through western Pennsylvania.

Video taken by William Bara shows a plate full of spaghetti freeze mid-scoop as temperatures fell to -27 degrees Fahrenheit (-32 Celsius) in Pittsburgh over Christmas weekend.

Speaking to Storyful, Bara said that he enjoys doing experiments when the temperature drops so drastically.

“This time I took my pasta outside, but it was too cold to eat,” Bara joked. Credit: William Bara via Storyful
