    So the other night I was grilling a tri tip some of you may have saw.

    It was blowing and raining, think monsoon rains, coming from all directions. I had placed my iGrill in a plastic baggie during the smoke and all was well. As usual with dinner and pre-dinner, I had a few of our local and non-local micro brews and I kind of forgot about the iGrill!!!

    The next morning I awoke in a panic remembering that I had not brought in the iGrill!!! Not only had I not brought in the iGrill, it was still blowing and raining. I went out to the gasser and there she was still sitting on the side table, sans plastic bag!!! I immediately grabbed her and towel dried her off.

    Praying that she hadn't drowned, I opened her app to check her vital signs. She was alive!!! 40/40 the screen read! I checked her energy level, 75%, thank goodness I got there in time!!!

    This is the third time I've done that, the other two times the auto sprinklers hit her. I'm surprised she hasn't all but left me yet!

  2. Looks like you ducked that bullet yet again!

    One trick to remember with any small electronics device that gets wet:  Leave it off, or turn it off, pat it dry and put it in a sealed ziplock bag filled with uncooked rice.  Rice is a great natural desiccant and will do a great job drying out the insides

    I think, even though not advertised that it is a bit water resistant. They make a device called iShower that is a radio for using in the shower. Same body as the therm. The battery door for the therm is gasketed. I've toasted two mavericks due to water!. Wish I could remember to not smoke and drink!
  4. Do it again to her and I'll bet you she'll divorce you!

    Glad all is okay though!
