Happy Fry an Egg on the Sidewalk Day (July 18)

July 17, 2008

Did you know that no matter how hot it seems, it has to be really, really blazing to actually fry an egg on the sidewalk?  We’ve been experimenting with eggs and frying pans and Plexiglas and aluminum foil this summer, and we’ve yet to successfully fry an egg on our sidewalk, sizzling-hot though it may seem.  We’ve been reading up on the Internet about techniques and tricks, but it seems to come down to this:  The temp needs to be above 95 degrees and the UV index needs to be very high … like today, when the temp will be in the mid-90s and the UV index will be 9.

Tomorrow, the quasi-official Fry an Egg on the Sidewalk Day, should also be prime egg-frying weather.  And for more similarly useless-but-fun data, check out the calendar on the HiCards homepage, where everything from Amelia Earhart to caviar gets its day in July.
