My oldest is 8-years-old and a very curious kid who obviously has a career as a scientist someday. I know this because he's constantly researching and experimenting.

He's spent the last few days reading up on heat waves and how to stay safe in the extreme heat. He's also been watching YouTube videos of people cooking eggs on the sidewalk during a heat wave -- so naturally we had to try.

Here are some things we learned:

  • No, it's definitely not hot enough to cook an egg on the sidewalk in western New York, even during a heat wave
  • My kids have no idea how to crack an egg, which means they've literally never paid attention to me while making breakfast.
  • When asked (repeatedly) if it would be hot enough later, I responded with "I don't know but we only have a few eggs left."

See the video for yourself.
