For those who are not familiar  with dry ice, dry ice is most often used as a cooling agent in preserving food, but it also has other applications, like preventing insect activity, loosening asphalt floor tiles and altering cloud precipitation. But if you add dry ice to water, a dense white fog occurs.

YouTube user CrazyRussianHacker posted a video where he experimented with dry ice by adding 30 pounds (13.5 kilograms) of dry ice to a swimming pool full of water.
