    Was it one of the glass type, with designs in it? We had a few like that, they had air in the designs in the glass. I may have had a few to many pops one night and fell asleep with the candles burning on the tale. I woke to an explosion!! the candle burned all the way down into the holder. The holder then exploded. I do not know if it was just the temperature that the glass reached that made it explode or if it was the air inside the design expanding that caused the episode. It was one of those 5 wick candles. I had 5 separate little fires to put out and wax every where

    Yah same situation except there wasn't any air I just think the holder didn't heat evenly and it cracked violently. Man did it scare me because I was fairly close to it.

    I'll try to check them out I'm sadly confined to using my phone so its a pain to post and view some stuff. I have like two blog items I want to post but I can't post pictures from mobile. I'm happy to hear that you are safe. And I really wish I had heat.... generator doesn't have enough juice for that.

    I'm glad to hear you are going to be having power soon. Maybe CT wasn't to stingy but I saw on the news that New Jersey wouldn't let Alabama Power help them with all the repairs because they weren't part of the union. It really just baffles me that in a crisis like this they would make others suffer.

    Where I live I will be part of the last group of people to get power. UI hasn't even started working near us they are still clearing sand and trees. They might have started to assess what electrical systems are damaged but still some roads are flooded and houses are unsafe to bring power back to. They said 95% should be back on by Monday night, I'm likely part of that 5% that won't be back online.

    Got power back at about 3am this morning had to put everything back on grid power. Generator is stored, but ready to be brought back out if the nor'easter hits us hard like predicted. I will be posting acouple albums here of the storm and damage.
