Mystery Solved!

That mysterious popping sound that Andrew and I heard as we were sitting in our living room?

Andrew found this mess on our sun porch:

Turns out leftover soda stored (and subsequently forgotten) on the porch  + subzero temperatures = major soda explosions. As in, yes, that's frozen soda stuck on window on the opposite side of the room.

Here's an "exploded" can complete with sheared edges and icy remnants inside:

For some reason (I don't know if it would be ingredients or just the position of the soda boxes), all the Diet Cokes froze and were a complete loss. Out of the regular Cokes, only two froze and the six remaining cans seem to be fine.

Is winter over yet?

I agree. Is this winter over yet? I heard we're getting more snow this week.

Hooray! Real Coke wins again.

Yup, unfortunately - another foot on Wednesday night!

CHicks - that leaves more Coke for you to drink, since Andrew and I usually drink diet. :)

Don't rule out terrorist Coke-a-Cola bottlers. Thank God you weren't on the subway

Foley Monster and Pocket may be right. We may need to reactivate Jack Bauer!!
