Welcome to Phoenix in Summer

This is how you know you are in Phoenix in any summer month when…

*The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
*The trees (same height as fire plugs) are whistling for the dogs.
*The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
*Hot water now comes out of both taps.
*Your electric bill is higher that your BMW payment would be.
*You can’t fry an egg on the sidewalk, they only burn.
*Planes are actually grounded for excessive heat.
*You can make sun tea instantly.
*You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
*The temperature drops below 110 and you feel a little chilly.
*You discover that in July it doesn’t really take fingers to steer your car.

*You discover that you can get sunburned through tinted car windows.
*With no A/C, it is still hotter with the car windows down than up.
*The weather service doesn’t issue excessive heat advisory til we pass 115F.
*You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
*Your car key is burning hot when you remove it from the ignition.
*You walk outside at midnight and it is still 112F
*You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 6:30AM!
Your biggest outdoor fear is, “What if get knocked out and end up lying on the *pavement and cook to death?
*You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
*The cows are giving evaporated milk.
This is a great place to live. god bless Phoenix. God bless whoever invented air conditioning!!

  1. I know all of you Arizonans love it, but whew! It’s just too hot out there for me. I called my AZ sister last night and I asked her if she was done yet….done baking in the oven! Ha! So are you done yet too??

    Air conditioning is my friend . I do not miss the snow, cold, and ice. I love the constant sunshine so I am willing to have the heat.
