Extreme Heat: Phoenix Forecasters Bake Cookies on Dashboard [PIC]
Forget the oven! Just bake your cookies on the dashboard of your car! In Phoenix this past weekend, forecasters with the National Weather Service baked cookies--in a van. They were joking around that they should bake some cookies, because that sounds a lot better than frying an egg! When temperatures hit 116 degrees, the forecaster hunted down cookie pans, tin foil and a roll of store-bought chocolate chip cookie dough. The temps actually got up to 119, breaking an all-time record for the day.
