So hot you can fry an egg?

It was so hot yesterday I decided to see if I could fry an egg on the sidewalk. The high temperature in Terrell, Texas yesterday August 3rd was 106 F. In Dallas the high was 107. It's suppose to be the same today. A break may come tomorrow with the high only in the upper 90s.

I ventured outside just before 5PM at the hottest part of the day and set a skillet on the sidewalk. I cracked an egg in the skillet and waited for it to cook. To see what it looked like after an hour in the hot sun, click here.

We are under an excessive heat warning, up to 106 again today. I just saw on TV that skin can burn at 124 degrees and playground equipment can easily make it up to 150 when its this hot out.

Yesterdays post was only for humor, I was not trying to make any specific political statement.
