Here is a fun little piece a friend sent to me about the weather in Fernandina Beach and how hot it feels.
It’s so hot that…
…you learn that a seatbelt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
…the temperature drops below 90F and you feel a little chilly.
…you discover that in July it takes only two fingers to steer your car (one on each hand).
…you discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
…you actually burn your hand opening the car door.
…robins use potholders to pull 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 break 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 fry to death?”
…the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull them out and add butter.
…the cows give evaporated milk.
…farmers feed their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.
…you realize that asphalt has a liquid stage.
