Finally a break in our weather, but not for many suffering drought

From one of my friends on St. Simons Island comes this lighthearted post about the weahter…………….

 

IT’S SO HOT in Georgia

…..the birds have to use  pot holders 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.

…..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.

…..and, the farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

IT’S SO DRY IN Georgia:

…..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 to water!

This certainly has something to insult everyone, and perhaps a chuckle from the sizzling population all over the U S.

  1. Thanks for the mention of my St. Simons Island post! I like your blog, and I love this post! You had me laughing! It’s so hot in Michigan, we can relate to the list too! Don’t you just get grumpy with a seat belt buckle that singes your fingers?;) ouch!
    My close friend from college lives on St. Simons Island, so I try to get there as often as I can. I call it “Paradise”…..for it truly is~ And Southern Soul BBQ is always my first stop! yum! Thanks again!

    You know what I think maybe the drought maybe widespread. I know here in CA–A lot of people that don’t live here think it never rains that much. I suppose compared to most places it doesn’t. But Southern CA depends on almost ALL its water supply from Northern CA. I live in Southern CA. We had a dry, HOT winter–Christmas was awful even by our standards. We often joke about bbqing on Christmas, but its a joke though some people COULD do it since it does rarely rain and only snows in the mountains or high desert. But it was so hot and uncomfortable that all day relatives who came to our home which is in a desert valley, who came from Orange County and other Beach areas–where in winter it is normally cool complained it was amazingly hot all December. And it stayed that way for us all winter. I think we got a break slightly with some rain in Spring. But it was it horrible here. And is still. While CA seemed to get a break while the east was roasting, you know like where I live we always get super temps in summer. But we’ve having this weird humidity! Very uncharatistic for Southern CA to say the least…all of us here have been moaning and groaning over it because we deal in DRY HEAT (and I personally hate that which is why I’m looking to move to like Colorado where the heat cools off at night at least). But for us in Southern CA, if NOTHERN CA has bad drought we have bad political thing going on because they are bitter about sharing so much water with the southern half the state and they are the conservative base of our state as well. The farmers, ranchers, small towns…mostly are all up north. And in Los Angeles you can get a fine for using your hose if a cop drives by and sees it–or a neighbor turns you in! =) So that’s all the signs you need here that things are in drought mode. Where I live, in a sprawling village like place, the caps have been placed on all water spigets. They used to have the water sprinklers on periodically all through the night…our grass is brown and the sprinklers come on twice throughout the night most. Though they do keep the golf course here green. So the drought is possibly more wide spread! Maybe no one is saying anything to protect panic. I don’t know but people, government people have got to know! And the price of food is so outrageous it also makes me feel they just aren’t saying anything about it. Maybe its about panic on Wall Street with how fragile its been or something but it is funny with all the information at our finger tips, news so supposedly on top of everything…and a lot of places are experiencing this drought like stuff and no one is saying anything nationally really when it could be a very a real national problem that everyone has a right to know about! It’s scary with how connected we are yet how information is still hard to come by. I realized that with disasters that were happening and they were just not being covered on OUR news! I watch A LOT of news. READ A LOT. So it’s disturbing that we think we have all this freedom of information here on the internet, but really it only comes from our connections with other people. Because official corporations and the like don’t seem to be giving us information we exactly should be hearing. I find it disturbing. Especially since this drought issue is very important to all of us about food prices and possibly availability! We have a right to understand why things are happening the way they are. And if we did, maybe conspiracy theory and cynicism wouldn’t eat away at so many of us because we feel such an apathy of lack of control because we don’t understand at all why so much happens which is why commend your blog! It really brings advocacy and knowledge to light like this! Thank you!!!!!

  3. Yes, the extremely odd but not surprising thing is that, here on Hawaii island, we are both experiencing drought (south side) and unending cool weather and rains (north side where we live). I feel bad for all of you sweltering in the heat, and wish I could send you our cool breezes and rains. I’m in fleece and socks most days!
