HOT, you don't know HOT!

Whew! Its HOT out there!

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN GEORGIA IN JULY/AUGUST WHEN. .. .

The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
Hot water now comes out of both taps.
You can make sun tea instantly.
You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.
You discover that in August it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
You actually burn your hand opening the car door.You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.
Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end uplying on the pavement and cook to death?"
You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from layingboiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.
Ah, what a place to call home. . . God Bless Our State of Georgia!!

HOLD IT.there's more.....

Note:
If you are not a resident of GEORGIA or never have lived in the hot,humid South, you may not understand the weight of this blessing!
Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry. Please keep it cool in mid-July(& all of August.
Bless the walls where termites dine,While ants and roaches march in time.Bless our yard where spiders pass Fire ant build castles in the grass. Bless the garage, a home to please Carpenter beetles, ticks and fleas. Bless the love bugs, two by two, the gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you.Millions of creatures that fly or crawl, in GEORGIA, Lord, you've put them all!!But this is home, and here we'll stay,So thank you Lord, for insect spray.
IT'S HOTTTTTT!
