      ~ 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.

      ~ You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

      ~ The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

      ~ You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

      ~ You discover 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.

      ~ 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.

      ~ The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and

      add butter, salt and pepper.

      • Karri trees are found in the south west corner of West Australia and are among Australia's largest.<
      • Marble Bar in the state's north holds the world record for consecutive days of over 100 degrees F (37.8C) of 160 days.
      • The hottest place in Australia is Wyndham with an annual mean temperature of 29.1 degrees C

      You got me beat on the temps, Tim... if we had that here all the homeless people would die... or move North!

      I thought about adding a couple of my own,
      how about these -
      An umbrella can be used more to keep the sun off than the rain, and...
      A hurricane is just a glorified storm... unless it's category 3 and it's heading towards your area!
