Back in 2008, 2009. and 2010, I did a post on my TFE blog about YOU KNOW IT’S HOT WHEN…. Obviously, it was too hot for me to do this post in 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014. Last summer was a nightmare for us and while it was HOT, who cared? I am so overwhelmed about the flooding and loss of life in this country and elsewhere. The fires as well. Please keep in mind, this is done tongue-in-cheek. My son found these posts hysterical. If you find it offensive as some ARIZONA folk have, I have learned you can’t please everyone and that is O.K. So with that being said, this is dedicated to J.W. I know you can read it from Heaven.
We have broken heat records the last few days. Today it looks like it will be a cool 116. It is dry heat right now, like a blazing hot oven but that will change when the monsoon hits. Then it is really hot with high humidity. Maybe this has been preparation for our future location when we “get out of Dodge”. Not SO, you know it is hot when..
The cactus is still dead.
The hot water heater is STILL in vacation mode but you have just scalded yourself with water from the cold water tap.
Your clothes are dry coming out of the washer.
You don’t need to dry off getting out of the shower.
It is still 100 degrees at midnight.
The local news team is thinking about trying to bake a pizza on the sidewalk.
You truly question your sanity for purchasing a black car with black leather interior.
When you go out to water plants, the water evaporates before hitting the planter.
Pool water can burn you.
It truly is a beautiful state but I can’t imagine why the pioneers stopped here (I’m calling it heat exhaustion)
Yep, it is hot. I have lived here for awhile and I am always shocked when summer comes around.
I am very thankful that I can escape the heat in air conditioning. My heart goes out to those who are homeless and have no where to go to escape the killer heat. Both people and animals.
In a few weeks it will be the 1 year anniversary of J.W.’s passing. I think he would like this post. I also think he is in the perfect climate in Heaven.
Stay safe and cool my friends.
Always big hugs,
