How Hot Is It?

I knew it was hot when the A/C started running almost continually.

I knew it was hot when I couldn't walk barefoot across our wood deck.

I knew it was hot when the kitchen windows were fogged up on the outside because it was cooler and drier inside.

I knew it was REALLY hot when the Canadian geese started cooling off in the mist of the neighbor's sprinkler.

I just heard a story on the radio about a woman who left a sheet of cookie dough in her car when she got to work and the cookies baked by lunchtime! - Our car gets around 140 in the hottest part of the day, so maybe it's possible...

I remember frying an egg on the blacktop once at summer camp in Michigan when I was a kid. Someone should come up with an "extreme outdoor cooking" cookbook that outlines how long stuff has to cook when the temperature outside is, say, 102. If I was more into food (well, preparing it, anyway; I'm already quite into it when it comes to eating) I'd attempt it, but I can barely get myself to cook in the kitchen. :)
