It is so hot, you could fry an egg on the sidewalk...really!

We are having quite a heatwave here in the South. Temps over 100 degrees. I have heard the saying all my life that it is so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. Before the boys went down for their nap we decided to put this to a test.

We sat out a skillet with an egg on the driveway.



When they woke up, we went out to check it. Sure enough...






It cooked...hard cooked, that is.

I can believe it - did the yolk cook solid also? :D
Your grandsons are getting so big.

We did that exact thing many years ago, with two little boys exactly that age! And it DID.

Always so good to hear from you way down there---hope the heat has not been too hard on you.

The children love this kind of experiment. This is my first visit to your blog. I love what I've seen here and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
