It is COLD in CT

I just had to share this with our Mod-Blog family. These cans are stored INSIDE at the bottom of our front stairs. Each is a diet soda, and each has EXPLODED in the last week, due to extreme cold (-5 degrees F to 20 degrees F) we have been experiencing. The explosions are surprisingly energetic, embedding ice globs onto and into walls up to 10 to 20 feet away.

Cue (1) people telling me to bring the soda upstairs, and (2) stories of people who know what cold REALLY is (I'm looking in your direction Mr. and Mrs. Bowhunter!)

To give you SOME idea of how energetic the soda ice explosion was...
More casualties of the cold. R.I.P. Diet Dr. Pepper.
How cold did it get in our front hallway last night?
