#760 "The air - moist, sultry, secretive, and far from fresh - felt as if it were being exhaled into one's face. Sometimes it even sounded like heavy breathing.”

We met the first summer I started blogging when she emailed me back and forth a few times and then we ended up meeting in person and have been “buds” ever since.  Love this fellow Southern girl! and her tales about the sticky Southern summer heat and how we compare the summers to Australia. 

I have heard that the southern heat makes people slightly insane. It’s an agitation that seems to grow deep as the season ripens, and the humidity and temperature rise in equal fashion. 

This southern heat has been both a blessing and a curse throughout her life. The giver of swims in the local creek and refreshing mint juleps is also the giver of 20-pound sweat drenched t-shirts and late summer landscapes browned and brittle as death itself, or so I have been told... 

What I love the most is her southern expressions about the summer heat, and the one liners that keep on coming..Just makes me crack up and appreciate that no matter where you are, the heat at summer you are not alone. 

Here are 10 of my favourite southern lines? What's your favourite expressions. 

It’s hotter'n blue blazes. 
Is it hot enough for ya? 
Man, it's hot as all get-out! 
It must be 90 in the shade. 
This one's gonna be a scorcher. 
You could fry an egg on the sidewalk. 
"Hotter than noon on the fourth of July 
Hot as the hinges on the gates of Hades 
Have y'all got any tea? 
Crank up that A.C. till it's blowing snowballs.
