The Lyrics

You may have heard of Phoenix shattering its alltime record of days over 110 (33) with 50 days over 110. But you still wouldn't catch the enormity of what happened. Up until July 26, we were having a mostly normal summer. Then we had 29 days over 110 AFTER July 26, to include 22 days in August and 3 in September Even more amazing 7 straight days over 115 in AUGUST. Right then and there I started asking myself, "What planet am I currently living on -- Mercury?" ....... I did this song before in 2017 (Another brutal summer) but I have changed the second stanza
The heat is gone, can walk the streets
No strokes to fear, from ungodly heat
The time is nigh, to go outside
No longer cowed, to stay inside
cause the heat is gone

Oh, how awful; Oh how awful
Fed up with inaction, I've got stepping out to do
Oh how awful, Oh how awful
Hell, I cannot feel it
Hell, I cannot feel it
Hell, I cannot feel it
The heat is gone
The heat is gone
The heat is gone
We walk the streets
Cause the heat is ,,,, gone

Oh how awful, Oh how awful
Sweltering protracIion, I was beaten down by you
Oh how awful, Oh how awful
Hell, I couldn't believe it
Hell I couldn.t believe it
Hell I couldn't believe it
The heat was on!

The shade tree's toast, on the-sun drenched side
Behind locked doors, bolts the Morlock* tribe
You can burn a steak, you can tend the lawn
That the choice you make
Cause the heat is gone
Oh how awful, oh how awful
Caught up in the traffic, Zonies* coming back to town
Oh how awful, oh how awful
Tell me can you feel it
Tell me can you feel it
Tell me can you feel
The heat is gone
The heat is gone
The heat is gone
It's off the streets
Yes, the heat is gone

*Cause we avoided the sun like Morlocks ..... *Zonie -- an Arizona inhabitant who flees to California, especially San Diego, to escape the heat

There are a couple of shade trees in the neighborhood that have withstood 20 summers that are now completely dead due to heat and lack of monsoon rainstorms

Last week temperatures in Kansas City were in the 60's, with 50's at night.. Rained some, too. Looks like we're warming into the 80's again. I don't know how anyone can live with 100 degree weather for long stretches of time. Temps were over 100 for a month or so in 1980 and people began dying. Winter same year was coldest ever. You can get any type of weather in KC at any time of the year. Snow in April. 70 and sunny in December. By the way, just reading today about our favourite song, "Sky Pilot". One reviewer confirms what I always hear, Eric Burden says "he stay'll behind, and he'll meditate". The only known use of this form of the future tense in the history of the English language.

A friend of mine in Arizona tells me that temps are in triple digits even now but the nights are cooler. At the same time in college some of my computer science profs were from India and they say that it can get up to 140 degrees F there, in the various climates in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh. Blaaacchhh!

You are correct, Suh. 90% of days in September were over 100. Temps at night in the Seventies. But it's a dry heat; as opposed to the godawful days in August when there was some humidity as well .... BTW, if you want to see some real scorchers there's a depression in the Sahara, the Qattara depression, which gets to 500 feet below sea level. Wonder how hot it gets there
