The first major winter storm of 2014 brought the coldest temperatures in two decades to the United States last week. Meteorologists said temperatures were dangerously cold and life-threatening in some places.

With almost nothing else to do due to the harsh winter storm, some folks decided to become creative and experiment with the weather.

Temperatures were 20 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit (11 to 22 degrees Celsius) below average in parts of Montana, North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Nebraska, according to the National Weather Service.

It was colder in Brimson, Minnesota, where the mercury plunged to minus 40 Fahrenheit (minus 40 Celsius) than in Arctic Bay, Canada, where it was minus 31F (minus 35C).

In order to explain how cold it was in their areas, some people decided to perform a little experiment by throwing boiling water in the air to watch it turn into snow. Some even got burnt in the process.

Here, have a look:

Here are some tweets of people who got burnt after the experiment:
