You Know You Are In Arizona in July When...

By one of those prolific email writers over the years...


The birds have to use pot holders to pull worms out of the ground.

Hot Worms Pot Holders
The trees are whistling for the dogs.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
Hot water now comes out of both taps.
You can make sun tea instantly.

Hot Dog In Ice
You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

And no matter how far north of 100 the temperature is, you still feel cold when you get out of the pool.
You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

Hot Pig Is Bacon
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.

Hot Dog With Fan
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.

Hot Melted Traffic Cone
The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.

Hot Popped Corn On Cob
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.

Ah, what a place to call home!
