It's so hot that...


Good Sunday afternoon, folks. I just came inside from a bit of gardening work & noticed that Multi's gettin' a shave.

I also noticed it was too friggin' hot to go back outside. A guy said to me yesterday that it was hotter than a popcorn fart, but I always thought it was 'dryer than.' That set me to thinking, though, about what expressions there are for painting pictures of this heat wave. I ripped some stuff off the net & here it comes. If you have some more, I'd love to read them.

It's so hot that I saw two trees fighting over a dog. It's so hot, today I saw a chicken lay a fried egg. It's so hot that birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground. It was so hot Bill Clinton got a slurpee and then went to 7/11. It's so hot that cows are giving evaporated milk. It's so hot that you've experienced condensation on your butt from the hot water in the toilet bowl.

It was so hot... All the corn on the stalks started popping and flying through the air. The cows thought it was snowing. And they froze to death. It's so hot, I saw squirrels fanning their nuts. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard boiled eggs.

Whaa, you not laughing? Gimmee some better ones. Stay cool, y'all.

Indy Music For Haiti...? Inflammatory Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma...? I looked it up on my UDD app...no, I don't get it. I love it when 11:11 lights up my digital clock, though, you analogical rascal, you.

I live in Phoenix. We were at 116 last week, with monsoon storms in the evenings. It has finally cooled down and we are only going to be 105 today.

Did you see our dust storm? A real dustnami (dustagedon?)-- check out the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W4Cx4...

Some pretty amazing weather happening here in the desert.

I did see your dust storm, beatrice. It was so dusty I bet you had to take a bath with a shop vac.

The city is still pretty much covered in dirt. We need a big rain. The pool got pretty muddy, but it cleaned easily enough. If you don't change out air filters on ac units and such, it can become a problem. Cars that were left outside were a real mess. I know one person who left his windows open -- I don't know if he will ever get the dirt out.

It's so hot I put some burgers and dogs on the grill and they cooked in no time at all, and the grill wasn't lit.
