Pictures From Arizona’s Heatwave: “Everything Is Literally Melting”

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Ask any Arizonan whether their summers are more tolerable because “it’s a dry heat” and you’re likely to be asked to turn your oven to 150 degrees, stick your head inside for 20 minutes and report back as to whether or not the humidity within the oven ever crossed you mind.  Probably not.

And while Arizonans have learned to cope with the “dry heat,” this summer has been particularly brutal for people living in the Southwest as temperatures have already soared to over 120 degrees in certain areas.  What’s worse, it’s only June.  

And while the heatwave may not be that fun for the people living through it, it does making for some amazing pictures of stuff melting.

Perhaps that plastic mailbox post wasn’t such a great idea in retrospect.

On the bright side, you can get all your baking done outside in mother nature’s free oven.

Plastic fences…also not a great idea.  Come on Arizona…you’re better than this.

Meanwhile, this Tempe resident (undoubtedly an ASU student judging by all the cheap alcoholic beverages) was just trying to do his part to fight climate change by recycling his beer bottles…it seems that ManBearPig won this round. 

Meanwhile, even the road signs are melting down…

…which is going to make it even harder for this guy to get around town…

Al Gore is going to have a field day with these pics.

  1. I have not seen anything like that, we have not broken the record temp yet.
    Garbage cans and mail boxes in direct sun are not melting folks, we may be hitting a few records but this is not that big of a deal.

    What is a big deal is how much chemtrail $hit they spray on us, how they let the wildfires burn into residential areas, having our water supplies reduced/cut off and the border being open.

  2. I’ve been to Laughlin NV in 125°.

    Across from bullhead city.

    Well flee how hot is that..?

    It’s so hot…
    That I went across the street to the quik-e mart.
    Drank a 40 ounce big gulp sprite and ran back to the old Flamingo casino.

    And I still didn’t have to go pee for hours.

    1. Hahahahaha!!!!!! Hilarious. I actually stayed at the Flamingo last year when I went there, so I can imagine.

  3. trying to push the global warming crap………completely dispelled as evidenced by having to wear my WINTER jacket this whole weekend here in god forsaken northern plains haha

  4. It’s called “Arizona” for a reason. As for it’s only June, in my neck of the woods which isn’t that far from Arizona, June is the driest and hottest month for the most part. July and August are when the rains usually come and it cools off some. And 125 degrees is not big deal–in Presidio on the border, it is 125 in June, and July, and August, as a matter of course. I’ll never forget driving through Needles, California at midnight, in August–it was 110 degrees, and also Blythe, California, right across the Arizona state line at 2 am in August, and it was 105!

    Folks, if you don’t like the heat, stay out of the Southwest in summer!
