Beware the Exploding Pellegrino

"It went bang!" exclaimed Barney, a rabbit who lives nearby.

Interesting thing happened tonight. Not only did I accidentally pour dish soap into the dishwasher (yes, I know), two bottles of Pellegrino exploded in my fridge. Call it ‘applied physics’ if you like; water expands when it’s frozen, fizzy water explodes when frozen in a glass bottle! Hmmm… I never said my Ph.D. was in Common Sense… But in my defence, how was I supposed to know it was that cold in my refrigerator?

Barney was a little shaken from the loud bangs, but I think he’ll get over it (actually, he is over it, nom nomming on a bit of banana for his troubles).

  1. I am concerned. Your fridge appears to contain only water and a paper bag. Though at least Barney is eating well!

  3. Bizare, same thing happened to us. Only the Pelligrino bottle was frozen and exploded in the fridge. Other fluids and a bottle of water were not frozen. In fact, some of the Pelligrino that was released in liquid form froze on all 3 shelves below the top shelf where it exploded. The fridge temp was definitely not below freezing.
