  • Climate change deniers evaporate (their ideas are all wet).

  • You could bake a cake on the driveway.
  • Businesses finally learn to stop watering their asphalt and concrete with sprinklers.
  • The scorpions come to town (the insects not the band).
  • Bald becomes beautiful again.
  • You wish it was January.
  • Everyone has the dry heaves.
  • No one wants to grill out anymore.
  • You feel like you are being sandblasted on windy days.
