What is dry ice used for?
On Halloween night, you’ve probably visited a commercial haunted house that uses dry ice to produce a thick fog. However, dry ice does have its uses outside of the entertainment industry. Dry ice is extremely cold, with temperatures at or under -109 degrees Fahrenheit. In fact, its incredibly cold temperature is one of the reasons why it produces a thick fog when exposed to warm air. It’s often used for shipping frozen foods that need to stay completely frozen during transit.
Can I find an ice skating rink during the summer?
Ice skating is a popular winter sport that is usually enjoyed in colder areas where lakes and ponds entirely freeze during the coldest months. However, skating on lakes and ponds isn’t always safe, especially once the ice starts to melt. Therefore, there are many indoor ice skating rinks that are open year round, even in the middle of summer. If you are trying to find a local ice skating park, check Magic Yellow’s listings to find one close to you.
Where can I buy bags of ice?
Anybody who spends time outdoors during the summer playing sports, camping, or swimming knows that the ice cooler is quite possibly one of the greatest inventions ever made. Nothing is more refreshing after working outside than an ice-cold drink. You can buy bags of ice to put inside your ice cooler from your grocer, where the ice is typically located on the frozen food aisle. Gas stations may also sell bagged ice that they keep outdoors in frozen coolers.
