HOT! HOT!

*UPDATE: We'll switch off days, you get a day of 100 degree temps and we get a day of rain. It sounds fair!

Whew! Its HOT out there!
YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN South WHEN. .. .
When birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance. (who wants to go anywhere? It's too hot to breath.
Hot water now comes out of both taps. (honest, it does)
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 JUNE 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. (It was 85 at 7:30 this morning)
Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying 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 the South

Amen sister!!! I swaer it wasn't this hot when I was growing up and I'd go out to play in the morning and come in well after dark.

I'll trade that for the wet,wet, wet here in NY. My mold is growing mold and we get a glimpse of the sun just long enough to let us know what we are missing.

Ugh. Better you than me! This Oregonian loves her 9 months of rain!

Parked at the far end of the zoo parking lot yesterday ... because it had a nice shade tree. Had to walk past 30 empty parking spots to get to the entrance, but the van wasn't an oven when we left.
