Broiled chicken, fried egg

Rappahannock News - - The Rapp -

It was so hot in Rap­pa­han­nock County this past week­end that one farmer claimed eggs were fry­ing in­side her chick­ens. While we can­not prove that odd­ity as fact we can con­firm it was ex­ceed­ingly hot — scorch­ing is a bet­ter word — as re­flected by this clev­erly worded sign out­side the Sper­ryville School­house. The Pol­lock Din­ing Room at Sky­land did a brisk busi­ness Satur­day, where evening tem­per­a­tures were 15 de­grees cooler than in Rap­pa­han­nock vil­lages below. More sea­sonal tem­per­a­tures will round out this fi­nal full week of July.
