Tropical Store Hermine was in full effect in Texas on Tuesday. Along with thousands of other folks, our power went out. This is where it gets interesting. Before the power went out I planned on boiling some water to make iced tea. I had the burner on high. I kept wondering why the kettle wasn't whistling... so I moved it to a different burner. Then it dawned on me... duh, no power!
Well a couple of hours later it came back on! Woo hoo!
After a few minutes I smelled something burning and then I saw a bit of smoke.
Then I saw that large burner glowing in bright orange, with my Blackberry smack dab in the middle of it. Here is the end result.
The strange thing is that it still works!
