My understanding is, it was hotter than blazes in Montreal last weekend.

it was not bad on Saturday. Overcast, not too hot. A little lightning and rain in the evening.
Sunday was hot as heck. But, that didn't stop us! In fact we didn't need to light a fire....

We've been there, way back in 1986. I think it was 104F in the shade at COALS for OMLET that year. I suggested that perhaps dad had missed quite the trick, and should have painted the boiler flat black, and added some mirror surface area to aid with steam production...

It was a wee bit too hot on Sunday, Thursday through Saturday was great. We certainly missed the smell of burnt corn and the sight of Howard dozing at the swap table.
