how hot is it?

Standard

my candle quietly answers the question. 

 

 

 

“what dreadful hot weather we have!

it keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”

turn down the heat.

glenn frey the cat not the rocker

is really upset

about the ongoing stretch of excessive heat

and has decided

to vocally protest

each night

however

i have a different style

and feel that silent protests

might be much more effective.

“that lemon drop is bearing down
so hot it wilts my artificial flowers”

and on the ground, in michigan, the falls are so cold they have stopped flowing. 

 

 

it hits me like an avalanche on fire – i am in the united states, and talking to my daughter in australia, and i realize, that while we are both sharing this exact same moment in time, on the exact same planet earth, we are simultaneously experiencing extreme weather temperatures that are 100 degrees apart.

and on the ground, in australia. the trees are so hot they have not stopped burning.

as my aussie grandson, m, once said, on his first winter visit to the states, when looking out the window of the cottage –

‘look peaches, there must be a fire!’

‘oh, m, don’t worry, that’s just blowing snow.’

‘oh, then there must be some snow on fire.’

has hell frozen over?, i wondered.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin. – William Shakespeare
