...inside the egg, and out.

Grilled in a sleet storm last night, and witnessed thundersleet. That's a new one by me.

Also got my quarterly eyebrow/arm hair trimming. Poof.

Hot dogs from the local butcher were good, though.

    Don't feel too bad Ben, after all my years I flashed myself pretty bad last Sunday. -RP

    You can keep the thunder sleet. :unsure:

    Ah the ole eyebrow/arm hair trimming by cooking hot dogs from the local butcher cook. Congrats! :laugh:
    Hope your OK :)
  • Uh oh. Not burned, I hope. This one wasn't too bad. Not nearly as frightening as the time I got my eyelashes.

    Burned the hairs inside my nose and couldn't make the smell go away. :laugh:-RP
  • No ill effects. Barely even felt the heat, what with the sleet coming down. Just a little flash-poof-sizzle.

    glad the dogs were good,
    glad you got the sleet and not me
    not so glad to here about the flashback, i got one last week doing steaks when the wind was blowing 30+mph from the north and my egg is on the north side of the house, i burped the egg twice and lifted the dome and whammo! i think everyone that owns an egg will get one, just hope that they are all minor and only take arm hair! :) :(
  • Blue is good! It's a clean fire when you blue ;) !!
    We've had thunder-snow this year in MN....

    where in mn are you?
  • Yeah, in the blizzard a few weeks ago, we had thundersnow, but somehow it wasn't audible/visible at our house, so I missed it. I had been looking forward to it. Instead, I got the thundersleet the other night.

    There was pretty funny video of one of our weathermen going ape-poop over thundersnow during the blizzard, which went viral. I maintained a little better composure during the thundersleet and flashback. ;)
  • I'm north of Grand Rapids.
    Where are you?
