There are stories about clothes freezing and drying in cold weather. The typical reason given for that is that the water is undergoing sublimation (ice -> vapor).
The phase diagram for water is
In a typical case, one would hang wet clothes outside, at say -5°C (or whatever realistic temperature). This would cause the clothes to freeze and then, in order to move between phases, the pressure would need to drop.
Note that this is the scenario I have in mind, not a direct water -> vapor transition (the usual kind, but also the one where the stating point on the graph is on liquid phase, and the ending point (external temp + current pressure) - in vapor phase).
Aren't the conditions a bit too esoteric for that to happen, often enough to have made it into some family legends?
