Broiled chicken, fried egg
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.
