One hard-boiled golf ball, please.

I made a small batch of hard-boiled eggs on Monday for my lunches this week. When I peeled today's egg (photos: 1, 2, 3), it was all pebbly, kind of like a golf ball. The inside seemed normal. It smelled a little sulfur-y, and I did not eat it. The other eggs from this batch have been fine. What happened? (NB- I cooked these eggs the same way I usually do, using the cold start method and then cooking for about 8 mins.)

Maybe there was a small crack, and water got inside the shell?

Best answer: is there any chance this egg may have partially frozen? do you keep your cartons at the very top-most part of your fridge?

Response by poster: Ooh, those are both good ideas, thanks! I think Exceptional_Hubris has it - I've been having some temperature regulation issues with my fridge and things do freeze occasionally. I bet that's exactly it!
