National Weather Service forecasters bake cookies on their Phoenix dashboard

Forget frying eggs on the sidewalk; you can use your windshield as an oven. It's hot out there, y'all.

  1. I knew there must be a way to make something positive out of our heat. I have used the windshield to keep croissants warm for the crew while building our house but I'm sorry that I never thought to bake cookies for them. Phew! Saturday was even too hot to swim.

    1. re: Sherri

      I recall my childhood years of waiting until 2:00ish to swim. Too hot and sunny before then.
      The heat there seems to get worse each few years....
      Seems the Phx Chowhound board also becomes like a ghost town this time of year. Stay safe and cool.
