Default Air Conditioning

Okay so i took a trip from Madison, WI to Chicago, IL recently and it was a good temperature on the way down there.. Probably 80-85 degrees... Windows down on the interstate is wayy to loud, so i turned the a/c on.. It was all fine until i looked at the vents and i saw like white smoke coming out from them. So i stuck my nose down there and it didn't really smell like anything... It was really really really cold... probably colder than normal.
Im a windows down guy so i dont really use the a/c that much, its never been on for over an hour before until today, but i was just wondering if it was normal for it to do that. It was kind of freaky to see white fog/smoke coming out of the vents.

I have a video that im uploading atm, ill post it once its done..


Thanks for all answers

edit----Heres Video

Normal....that's what happens when your AC gets too cold before it cycles over to the off position. AC cycles....many don't know that.
