    Chip Brown,
    No problem at all. There have been some incredible photos on this site of folks egging in downpours. Have at it.

    Chip Brown,[p]"Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!"[p]"Help me, I'm melting . . . "[p]The answer is, no, your Egg will keep on chugging in any and all weather conditions provided it doesn't get completely flooded through the vents. Light rain won't hurt at all. Some folks rig up a coffee can or something similar to keep things a bit drier.[p]

    <p />Chip Brown,
    no problem, but during some storms here in the midwest we can get real gully washers so I prefer an inexpensive cap like this. Get one at the HVAC section of any big box store like orange or blue. It's merely a roof top vent cover. Just remember they get HOT !

    Chip Brown,[p] Only if the amount of rising water does exceed the displacement volume of the egg. It might sink in which case the fire will go out..[p] If you egg sinks call me. I specialize in Deep Water Egg recovery. :)[p]

    Celtic Wolf,[p]Do you claim salvage rights in such cases?

    Haggis,[p] Shhhhhh! You aren't supposed to tell people that!! GEESH!!!
  • Chip Brown,
    I egged a small brisket through a storm that knocked out the power, took down 2 "specimen" trees, caused a couple of 30' pine trees to lean, beat all the plants around the house to death from the wind and hail, and did about $30,000 worth of damage to the house. It was blowing so hard, you couldn't see anything. I thought Mr. Egg was going to be spread all over the neighborhood, but he never moved, and just kept right on cooking. We had sammiches late, by candlelight. No problem.[p]Mike in MN
