What to do with the kids when it's 100 degrees:
If you have a trampoline and a sprinkler, put the sprinkler under it and jump with the water on.
Take a video of yourself outside with a thermometer and record your thoughts. You can say that you were there in the Heat Wave of '11.
Do the experiment: See if it is actually hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. Need melted chocolate (let’s say to dip those strawberries)? Trying putting it in a bowl and sticking it in your car to see if your chocolate will melt.
