It's so hot outside today..........How, hot is it?.......

Post  BackyardBirdGardner on 7/12/2011, 9:15 am

It's so hot, I just saw two trees fighting over a dog!

It's so hot, I sat down and thought I smelled bacon!

It's so hot that I'm packing the car for cooler pastures and put a "Death Valley or Bust" sign in the back window! (Heat index 115°). No

It's so hot outside, it doesn't matter which knob I turn on the faucet, I get hot water both ways!

(For real... the pipes run through the attic! Shocked )

It's so hot outside, I milk the goat, and out comes feta cheese!

Full disclosure: I don't have a goat, I just got to thinking about cheese...

These are some of my favorite Texasisms (yes that is an actual word).
You Know You're in Texas When...
You can say 110 degrees without fainting...

You eat hot chilies to cool your mouth off...

...You can make instant sun tea...

You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron...

The temperature drops below 95, you feel a bit chilly...

You discover that in July, it takes only 2 fingers to drive your car...

You discover that you can get a sunburn through your car window...

You notice the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance...

Hot water now comes out of both taps...

It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one person is out on the streets...

You actually burn your hand opening the car door...

You break a sweat the instant you step outside...at 7:30 a.m. before work...

No one would dream of putting vinyl upholstery in a car or not having air conditioning...

Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"?...

You realize that asphalt has a liquid state...

Got these here, there are more Texasisms there.

I love these! Several years ago in CA my BIL gave himself 2nd degree burns on the bottom of his feet because he didn't take his flipflops to wear walking (hopping?) home from the public pool (he was dropped off) - it was 112 that day.....

Back when I rode a bike I used to have to pour water over the seat this time of year to avoid a most unfortunate burn. Found that out the hard way affraid

My brother says he knows summer is here if he forgets his coffee in the car and when he goes back to get it, it's hotter than before.
