IT'S SO HOT THAT... ~ The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground. ~ The trees are whistling for the dogs. ~ The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance. ~ Hot water now comes out of both taps in the sink. ~ You can make sun tea instantly. ~ You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron. ~ The temperature drops below 95 F (35 C) 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 am. ~ 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. ~ Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.
