You know it's hot when...

  • You can fry an eggplant on the sidewalk.
  • Workers with the graveyard shift are now the smug ones.
  • It will be nice to be back in the high nineties.
  • Popsicles - they're what's for dinner. 
  • There is talk of abolishing neckties altogether.
  • Experts on the human body advise you not to exercise. 
  • Water becomes an entire food group.
  • The saying "horses sweat, men perspire, women glow" is all wet. Everything sweats.
  • The dog drops her ball in the pool just to jump in and retrieve it.
  • Clothes on the line iron themselves.
  • Rolling brownouts don't refer to your toddler's leaky diaper.
  • Cal Trans workers can now rest their shovels directly into the asphalt.
  • Flip flops, shorts and a tank top are now considered formal wear. 
  • You long for our valley fog that blocks the sun for weeks. December can't come soon enough.
