A Heat Wave Hits the North

Heat Wave Hits the North

By Elton Camp

Heat makes the Yankees scream and shout
But they don’t know what weather’s about

For those people, who in the South reside
It can be unpleasantly hot and humid outside

But that’s the reason air conditioning is made
It’s not enough to sip mint julep in the shade

But in winter when Yankees slip and slide
Our weather is often still pleasant outside

So a northern heat wave makes me sneer 
Just wait—they have even worse to fear

Living in the North is a terrible plight 
On balance, our weather is a delight

So, before a fan you Yankees must sit
Wait to see how hot it’s gonna get

    It's plenty hot here in Alabama, but we've had worse. Much of the country, however, is having unusual heat, especially in the North. The weather has been rather strange for a year or so. Elton

    This amuses me because I live in Florida and am always annoyed by people up north complaining about their "heat waves". haha They don't know heat, but then we don't know cold so I guess it's a fair trade.

    We have relatives living in Rochester, NY who are freaking about a heat wave. Elton
