It was hot last week when we created the Monday Poll. Like, fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot. So hot we decided to create a poll about being hot.
Of course, by the time Monday rolled around it wasn’t so hot anymore — a circumstance which perhaps affected the participation in and responses to our unscientific Monday poll. Nevertheless, here are the promised results, based upon just under 100 responses:
