A Gasser impossiblity,,,,,

We had a wind warning yesterday here on the Wet Coast. Gusts up to 80 kmh ( 50 mph) Some people lost power due to trees limbs fallings and such. SWMBO and I had already had our hearts set on fajitas for supper. When the warning came up, we were going to be die hards. The large egg was lit with oil soaked paper towel, ( which did take a little convincing to light) didn't take long and the temperature was up. Back outside and fought the wind storm. The egg never wavered, did its job like a good thing. Even grilled the shells. LOVE THE EGG!!!. Gasser wouldn't have been able to stay lite for sure.

    Been there done that. Egg handles any weather. Add rain in to the wind and Egg stayed steady.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    It was over several properties and all damages are probably below deductibles so owners end up just footing the cost !

    Yesterday was unreal. Drove to Bellingham and the rain was like driving under Niagara, then the sun and wind came up. We didn't lose power - which was good as we were having pot pies for dinner. 
    @double - sorry to hear about the damage, no fun at all.
