It's So HOT!

IT'S SO HOT in Indiana.....the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground. .....the trees are whistling for the dogs. .....the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance water comes from both taps. can make sun tea instantly. learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron. .....the temperature drops below 90 F and you feel a little chilly. discover that in July it only takes two fingers to steer your car (one on each hand). discover that you can get sunburned through your car window. actually burn your hand opening the car door. break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 5:30 A.M. .....your biggest motorcycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"? realize that asphalt has a liquid stage. .....the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter. .....the cows are giving evaporated milk. are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs. IT'S SO DRY in Indiana that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving rain checks, and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water!

  1. I understand completely. My nephew took a photo of the thermometer on his deck today--true, it was in the sun, but it showed 128 degrees.
    We've had weeks and weeks with no rain, but the monsoon arrived at my house yesterday, so I've done a couple of stints of weed pulling and am praying for more rain, but that the mountains won't get enough to cause flooding in the burn scars.
