This cold snap is killing me

I haven't EGGed in over ten days, it's been too cold, snowy and icy to be outside. I'm ready for some above freezing temps

    the year before i left ontario we had minus forty routinely with wind chill, some long under wear and a good coat and you barely notice the ball numbing cold! I've never tried an outdoor heater but wouldnt be a bad idea...

  • @Seanr7 - where you at? Maybe think about putting location in the signature line like many of us have done. 
    Sure has been cold on the Canuck prairies.

    Yep - going on two weeks with no Egg.  And it does not look promising for another few weeks.  I got to go get tarp to cover the Egg and cabinet its in as it may not see use until spring.

    I'm in Oklahoma, we aren't used to this. The average high temp this time of year is 59-60. We haven't been above freezing since last Wed night.

  • I am sort of embarrassed to say this but it has been relatively mild here. Cool this morning but that has been it.

    @Charlesmaneri that looks like a nice way to turn a tank into a heater!  Harbor Freight?



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • SmokeyPitt yes thats right I got it at Harbor Freight

    This is my egg on Sunday, just before I put on the steaks to start the reverse sear.  Not sure how cold it was that night (I'm in Chicago) but, after travelling for two weeks, I was going to cook something regardless of the weather.

    Gotta admit I have had more issues with the egg self sealing (freezing) at the gasket already this year than for the past 2-3 full winter seasons.  Never a show stopper just a pain.  Global warming has to even this out soon :)>-

    The cold snap almost killed my Egg. It didn't even occur to me to move it out from under our large tree.

    Pulled a 15 ft branch off our patio. There is still one up there that is probably 18 ft that I need an extra set of hands or two and some ladders to get down.image

    You Canadians are an odd lot! ;). I'd never even venture outside if temps got that low, although 115 f I can handle.

    At 115ºF us Canucks just sizzle on the sidewalk like an egg..... You can always dress for the cold, but you can only take so much off...eh?

    have only been in weather that cold once, was amazed how you dont feel the cold like you would think you would, and how quickly a heated molson freezes while holding it in your hand :)) since the old torino wasnt even going to turn over, i was held hostage at a hotel with a  margarita bar, i think im still paying that bill :))
