glad it's not me - it's in the 70's here with rain! last week, though, I could have cooked at midnight on the sidewalk :)

not in slovenia, that's for sure

Masago said...

Some background: When I was kid I recall on a summer day it got so hot that a newspaper reporter tried the stunt of trying to cook an egg on the hot sidewalk. I don't recall if he was successful but it made an interesting story on the front page.

Andrew: Interestingly it was cooler here last week but has gotten almost unbearable here since the weekend.

John: Thanks.

Polona: No?

I've missed some wonderful haiku, Vaughn, while offline :)

I tried cooking an egg on a rock once, years ago in California - it did definitely sizzle a bit but didn't cook it enough for my taste.

Janice: Thanks. It's good to know that someone else has tried this silliness. :-)
