Here in the Phoenix area, summer has arrived with a vengeance! 110 and above. And when they say 110, you can count on the fact that it's 120 on the asphalt. I've always wanted to try the mythical frying of the egg on asphalt here because I'm convinced it would work!
I decided to rerun the video by The Sandals because anything with water and surfing looks wonderful to me right now. We got in the pool tonight and it felt like a hot tub, so we turned on the aerator. It reminded us of Seattle -- swimming in the rain! We have an excessive heat warning in effect through 8 p.m. Sunday night, with a high around 113. By Thursday, it looks like a cold wave with a high of only 108. The only saving grace is that 108 in Phoenix usually feels like 108. There's something to be said for DRY heat!
