We have been sweltering here in the heat . Temps do not usually get this hot in June and July.. Normal for us in mid 70'or low 80's and this year we have seen 90 or more. Those blue skies fool you..so cool looking up there but beneath is a different story.
Here is a picture taken after a rain in June..notice the rainbow.
The summer of 2012
IT'S SO HOT in MICHIGAN that------
.....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
.....hot water comes from both taps.
.....you can make sun tea instantly
.....you learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
.....the temperature drops below 90 F and you feel a little chilly.
.....you discover that in July it only takes two fingers to steer your car.
.....you discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
.....you actually burn your hand opening the car door.
.....you break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 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"?
.....you 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.
.....farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from
laying boiled eggs.
IT'S SO DRY IN MICHIGAN 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!
Below is what my lawn looks like now
Joining Sally for blue Monday.
