I saw a polar bear with a sun burn.
...I just cooked bacon and eggs...on the sidewalk.
...If you spit gum on the ground it boils.
my kids are sitting still...
the outdoor thermometer at the bank read "Broke"
I am burning calories just by sweating so much when I go outside for a smoke break (that isn't meant to be a joke- that's the truth)!
Even my weeds are wilting
Star, my daughter's not too far from where you live and she said that they had a heat index yesterday of 112! It's 'only' in the mid-90's here today but Mon. and Tues. it was near 100 with the humidity so high I could hardly breathe! Even at 10 or 11:00 pm, I couldn't stand to be outside more than a minute or two!
We were 110 yesterday - it was so hot the grass crunched at 5:00....I turned on the sprinkler on a pity mission for the grass and plants. But honestly? I was out trimming bushes and playing with the dogs. I don't have AC in my car - and I guess I'm just used to it.
I did learn one really helpful hint yesterday ----If you keep your thermostat set to 20 degrees BELOW the outside temp? It will still cool your house and not BURN your wallet.
I think people right now are trying to stay cool - I filled the dogs pool up and we splashed and had a good time......Two of them went snorkling......Casper is a water lover.....Buill will dive if he's given a chance but Pootie? WANTS NOTHING to do with getting wet....Olivia? She was so high yesterday I'm not sure she even remembers being outside. I think I'm forgiven today. maybe.
I can't get the picture to upload!!! So here is the URL!
Even my plastic plants are wilting.
It's so hot that Satan went home to cool off.
It's so hot it finally feels like summer to this displaced Floridian, and it makes me homesick.
Yesterday we were heat index at 114 degrees, close to that the day before.
It's so hot outside that when you breathe you burn your lungs.
Today was nice though. 84 with low humidity. And now we're on our way up again. ugh
I made eggs and bacon right on the sidewalk !!!
In Seattle, it was 13 degrees BELOW normal yesterday!! I'm too cold/frozen to even understand "It's soooo hot.....that.."! (and a bit jealous too!) It's been like this all year and looks like it will continue for several more weeks.
It was nice the last couple of days here.
I'm NOT looking forward to when it goes back to normal.
Heat index is supposed to be around 115 here today. Satan is still in Hell cooling off.
You know Hell froze over in March of 2009, right? (When BM voluntarily gave up custody.)
Which somewhat explains the weird weather for the last 2 1/3 years.
