Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Hot enough for ya?

Dear Friends: "Let's get things back into perspective!"

Still don't believe in climate change bunky? (Especially for all our conservative friends.)

Well get a load of this kids: The experts warn you about all the dangers of global warming: melting ice caps, rising sea levels, more destructive hurricanes.

All bad stuff!

What they don’t tell you is that when it gets to be around 120-degrees, the sidewalk gets so hot, it can fry a puppy paw instantly.


Can you imagine the horror these poor pups are facing?!

They’re not the only ones dealing with some undeniably extreme consequences of the historic heatwave tearing through the Southwest right now.

In Tucson, the forecast predicts that the Arizona town is about to experience the hottest seven-day stretch in its history, with highs soaring north of 110-degrees for an entire week.

According to the National Weather Service, Phoenix tied its high temperature record of 118-degree on Tuesday. Guess when the last time the city saw a temperature that high was?

One year ago, June 20, 2016. And when it’s this hot for long stretches of days, everybody suffers.

Also:

Mid afternoon flights out of Denver airport were cancelled again today because it was just too hot for planes to take off!

With temperatures in the 40+ degree range, the air wasn't dense enough to give these planes enough lift to take off ......, and air traffic controllers ended up with a pile of airplanes at the far end of the runway before they cancelled all flights until after supper when it would be a bit cooler outside!

It’s so hot, you can bake cookies and fry bacon inside a car

Because the old fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk trick isn’t that impressive in heat like this, a team of National Weather Service meteorologists baked cookies and fried bacon on a car’s dashboard.


They said the car’s interior temperature was about 200-degrees at the time, which you can barely see on the thermometer in the image above.
