Doctors warn of burns from asphalt as heat wave hits US West

Fried egg on asphalt.
Egg.

“If you look at hot pavement or asphalt at two o’clock in the afternoon in direct sunlight, the temperature is usually somewhere around 170 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.”

– Some doctor

In case you haven’t heard, it’s hot out there. Damned hot. Hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk?

Yeah.

Unconfirmed reports state this is possible. So, I may have to try it myself.

Film at eleven.

Perhaps I’ll make coffee as well.
