Weird cold weather science

CBS 58's Bill Walsh and his homemade toboggan


by Michele McCormack

MILWAUKEE-In the never ending quest to demonstrate just how cold it is outside, CBS 58's Bill Walsh played mad scientist Monday as southeast Wisconsin was gripped by sub zero temperatures.

He went through an array of experiments, but probably his most creative was fashioning a toboggan using a bath towel, a bucket of water, some smaller buckets and the bitter cold.

If you watch the attached video you will see how he put it together and how well it performed at a local sledding hill.
