First off, thanks to everyone for the replies on getting my frozen egg open. It took half of the Sunday Columbus news to do it but I got the lump started.
30 minutes later I lift the lid!!! Oh Joy!!
My egg that had 8 inches of snow and ice on it and hasn't been used in a month is open!!! So, In my excitement I see my cast iron top, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!! :ohmy: BIG mistake, that SOB is HOT! So i proceed to drop it on my pretty ceramic tile I have on my table, which is now in 10 pieces. Here I sit with an Icepack on my 3 fingers I burned. Hey, on the bright side my egg is lit and we will be having "The Chicken for dinner tonight.
