Out of the Blue

Well, we're on the cusp of the Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S., a solemn occasion which is also considered the unofficial start of summer. That's fitting in these parts, where the weather has been particularly warm the past few days. This kicks off the grilling season, and we will indeed be opening Mastovia. As I've previously mentioned, this will mark the end of an era, as our imminent move will require switching from a charcoal grill to propane. Luckily, there's a WIRED article to make me feel better about this called Grilling Over Gas Is Objectively, Scientifically Better Than Grilling Over Charcoal. That made me feel better for about two seconds before I saw the companion piece Grilling Over Charcoal Is Objectively, Scientifically Better Than Grilling Over Gas, so it turns out they are just messing with me.
