Norad: Hotter than witch tits in a brass bra.


There must be something about witch tits, because this humidity is making it stickier than a witch's tit. (CNY)

Hot as Satan's taint!

Heraclitus: Heard this one time...

" it's so hot my nuts are stuck to my thigh like Crazy Glue"


LOL My husband called the "bat winging".

I prefer to just say "I'm sweating balls"

Dear God. I meant to say, My husband calls that "bat winging". Too early here.

Hotter than Satan's bollocks.

Although the BBC excelled themselves on their Wimbledon coverage with the awesome....

"It's an absolute jamspangler of a day in London, so hot it would take your face off if you didn't take the necessary precautions. "

Melvin Lovecraft: Kind of off-topic, but as far as wet weather, I heard a weatherman in Gainesville FL describe excessive rain as "a real frog choker".

/Had never heard that one before.


Have heard in Alabama and North Carolina as a gullywasher or a toad choker (summer late afternoon thunderstorms)

Has anyone went with a jew in an oven yet? That is like the Godwin to this thread.

It was an annual event on a Nacogdoches Texas news station to see how early in the summer you could fry an egg on the pavement.

LonMead: I've liked "fair up" for a weather term... it means it's clearing: "It's supposed to rain this mornin', but it should fair up this afternoon."


"socked in" is one of my faves

crotchgrabber: Summer weather?

Foggy.


Same here. Depending on if you're right on the coast or not. Also "fair weather" in reference that in August it's fair....during the county fair.

Also heard 'round here "I'm sweating balls" "the sheep are shearing themselves" and "so farming hot I can make an omelette with my ovaries"

AverageAmericanGuy: Hot as a Half-F**ed Fox in a Forest Fire

That's pretty insensitive considering what just happened earlier this week.


The actual saying is fresh-f***ed fox in a forest fire.

What the hell is "half-f***ed" anyway

moshi8: Doubletwist-: I live in TX. I think "Too farking hot!" pretty much covers it. Woe to the dummies who live in Phoenix or Vegas.

I want to go back to northern California...

Northern California has been under some pretty severe heat conditions for over a week now. I am just past Sacramento and and it has been roughly a high of 109 since last Wednesday.

The Delta Breeze finally kicked in and I believe today should only be 95! Brrrrrr

/I know, I know, only a week. But still. Ick


It was 110,116, and 114 in redding about 2.5 hours or so at the north end of the valley.
 
2013-07-06 01:26:06 PM  

Stone Meadow: Where I grew up in the year-round gloom and rain of the PNW, we didn't have a word for "hot". The closest we could come was "wood-burning stove".*

* - damned near factual statement


I'm sitting in 62F air, all the windows are wide open, and nature's air conditioner (tm) is running fine, so I'm getting a kick out of these quaint colloquialisms for "summer heat."

I thought Sacto was not considered "Northern" California.

You Frisco Cali people should get your regions sorted out before you rag on everyone else for mis naming them.

My favorite part...it's not actually that dry of a heat in the worst part of the summer.  The humidity goes up in the monsoon season, and the heat doesn't really go anywhere.  Even the last few days, I think the humidity has been somewhere like 20-30% depending on the day, which feels like more when it's 110 or so.

The central valley north of Bakersfield is northern California. North of the valley is Jefferson, which isn't Californian enough to take part.

Abner Doon: I think the humidity has been somewhere like 20-30% depending on the day, which feels like more when it's 110 or so.


It's supposed to be around 90ish here today and my humidity is at almost 60%.
FUN!

Years ago some Farker in a Photoshop contest (that I can't find) altered that thirsty dog image so that the water was squirting out its ass. Too bad Mental Floss didn't steal that image. This may be a copy:
