Dear Seymour Simon,
We are 3rd Graders in Mrs. Lambert’s class at Harvard Elementary in Tacoma Washington.  We are just beginning to BLOG.  We enjoyed looking at your frozen soap bubble picture on January 15, 2014. It was really cool. We learned a new science vocabulary word, Polar Vortex.  We are excited about your science blog . We look forward to hearing from you. Maybe you could come to an assembly at our school. 

May the Blog be with you!

Dear Mrs. Lambert’s Class,

I am so glad that you are starting your blogging adventure here at!

Next week I will have a new Writing Wednesday. Maybe you would like to share some of your writing? I suspect that there are some science writers in your class.

Please keep writing. I love to hear from you.
Seymour Simon

My awesome science word is frostbite. It means that when the fingers, ears, nose, or face freezes, than it can damage the skin or body tissue. In some cases, the tissue can go numb, and drop off.  When I use it in a sentence, it sounds like, “When you stay in the freezing cold for a long period of time, you would most likely get frostbite.”. I think it is awesome because when you get frostbite, it feels like it actually bit you.

WO. WHAT… Now that has to be a first. You can actually see the frost spreading on the bubble! I wonder what happens to the air in the bubble.

Posted by aderagon  on  01/17  at  06:05 PM

Wow that’s so cool! I want to do that! I tried to find out when the next polar vortex is, but it won’t come up! Seymour Simon, if you see this, when is the next vortex?

That was awesome how you saw post the picture of the frozen soap bubble it looks really magical. wink I really would like to try that. By the way where did that happen in? :o

shanghai, china

Wow!:) I never knew that if you blew soap bubbles at 15˚F then it will immediately turn into Ice, the picture even shows that there was a little bit of frost coming down just about to cover the bubble with Ice. I going to try that sometime I think it will be so cool to look

Lots of readers liked this photo as much as I do! John L., we can’t know when the next polar vortex will be - the weather is ever changing and we don’t know what is going to happen until a week (or maybe ten days) before. We do know, however, that climate change and the overall warming of Earth’s atmosphere is causing big fluctuations in the path of the jet stream——and that contributes to phenomena like the polar vortex, where huge masses of Arctic air are pushed much further south than usual.

Lani - this photograph was taken in Washington State, U.S.
