Can Your Tears Really Freeze?

My twins asked me if tears could really freeze in this Arctic cold blast that we’ve been suffering through, and I do meaning suffering!

The answer is yes, but only at 30 – 40 degrees BELOW zero.

In theory, your cheeks (about 98.6 degrees) would need to begin to freeze to slow down the droplets of tears (coming from the inside of your eyeball slightly warmer than 98.6 degrees) which on average contain enough salt to require a very cold freezing point.

And there you have it, something to chat about at dinner tonight!
