: : : Hi folks,
: : : Could you think of any interesting phrases or idioms to decribe the extreme heat of this summer?
: : hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk?
: "90 degrees in the shade", "a scorcher",
Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head
