Warning..DO NOT LEAVE SODA POP ON YOUR PORCH IN BELOW ZERO WEATHER.

I thought I'd remember this, but I guess not. I mean, I do live in Nebraska where we do get all 4 seasons with all of the extremes, but come on! I should have remembered...

This one broke open the 12 pack as it exploded. The can has expanded as much as it could and POP! No pun intended..


The after effect...


This happened on our enclosed back porch..there's still frozen pop on the floor. I think I can vacuum the rest up without it melting...

Put you glasses on Gravey! It tells you right on the can in BIG letters that it'll only hold to ZERO.

Yeah, the explosion on the fridge, the floor, all of my boots...it was pretty great. It's actually still frozen there, as I've been working too much to scrape it all off!

Well..Northeast Nebraska, anyways. We were right in the middle of that lovely midwest blizzard. Speaking of explosions, check this out..

Yesterday, there was a 1 sq. mile radius of my town evacuated. Houses, businesses, everywhere! A 30,000 gallon LP tank had a faulty valve that caused the LP to ignite. This is a video of our local heroes risking their lives for their families, friends, and people they don't even know..

State Patrol helicopter video.

If you peruse the site (our local newspaper) - go through the blogs and find the 'What's a BLEVE'. This is would could have happened. We were all very lucky!
