It’s so hot in Arizona right now that everything is literally melting

So, it’s really, really hot in Arizona right now. In fact, the entire Southwest is experiencing an extreme heat wave with temperatures reaching 120 degrees Fahrenheit, and people and animals experiencing heat stroke and contact burns from touching pavement.

It’s so hot that plastic mailboxes are melting, making them double over:

  1. I am sorry I live in Queen Creek it got up to 120 this past week, it is hot but, it is not hot enough to make a plastic recycle bin melt or a street sign! I highly doubt the plastic wall was melted as a result of the temperature.

    • I ‘see your disbelief’ and ‘raise you a mostly ludicrous’. You are right. The garbage can (like a garden cart of mine) was likely placed to close to the source of heat. Photo shop the wall and start your egg on the stove top then take a picture, because it should really be cooking directly on the sidewalk. My cookies don’t bake that fast in a 400′ oven! The cactus might be legit… And booties for the dog, definitely needed even at lower temps when you walk your family pooch. A mixed bag of truth and jokes…

  2. Better vote for Global Dictatorship! If we don’t tax the peasants into submission, the planet will catch fire!!

    … /sarc off

    Actually, I’m not that surprised. I remember a heat wave here in Texas when I was a kid (a long time ago when we were Global Cooling). People’s tires melted. My own dashboard vinyl became sticky, pimpled, and it never fixed itself. (I crashed that car being a stupid 15 yo driver, so no worries.) Mom’s flowers – except the marigolds – all died. I made an omelet (two eggs, cheese, and butter) on the sidewalk – just to see if it could be done. And it worked great. I remember joking with my stepfather that if Global Cooling kept up, our composition roof would melt.

  3. Okay…I live here in the Phoenix metro area: It IS HOT here but as to melting well it feels like one could but drinking water is our salvation and the pets out and about, if they have to be out there. I wet down towels for the ferals that live in my backyard and make sure they have lots of water to drink too! Shade is a godsend. Parking in the shade is a must, if you can and if not, the biggest shade over the front window and cover the steering wheel with something to prevent the hot wheel! People stay inside here and enjoy the AC for sure but it is expensive, so it is set at 80 with ceiling fans going full blast and personal or portable ones too! One has a cold drink going all the time! And if lucky enough to have a swimming pool, it is so nice to be in! Sadly parents do not watch their kids close enough and there are always drownings…:o[ There are covers on door handles and gates cause you can get a bad burn! Plants that are put out of nto for this area, are toast fast! THAT IS WHY BROWN LAWNS ARE ACCEPTABLE HERE!;o] I water the bushes and the trees but everything else dies for the summer! It is a dry heat so when it gets up there and there is a breeze or wind…feels like a blast furnace when you go out. But we carry on as life does keep on going and we must too. I have often wondered how many gallons of ice tea and ice cubes I make in a summer and over the years?!! ;o] Only in AZ do folks go outside to watch it rain ha…especially if we get a good one in the summer!
