The Scientific Method

Each and every day, you are faced with having to make split-second decisions, and the need to solve random problems that you encounter.

One morning not long after moving there and eating picnic food and/or fast food we decided it was time to go grocery shopping. We went to the grocery store, came home, unload the trunk full of groceries, and load it into the freezer. Later on I went into the freezer to grab some ice cream for the kids to eat and it was soft. It did not become soft during the ride home from the grocery store. I am sure of that because we carry a cooler filled with ice when we go grocery shopping. I stuck the ice cream back into the freezer. Ask Question: Why was the ice cream soft when I removed it from the freezer?
