Sky is falling, Phoenix is melting: Heat hysteria takes over social media

No, it wasn't just you. It was actually pretty hot last week.

Temperatures in Phoenix reached well above 110 the entire week. Records were broken, eggs were cooked and flights were grounded. Fortunately, street signs didn't melt.

And if that wasn't enough -- heat hysteria took over social media.

Apparently, it was so hot in Phoenix that...

A cactus "melted"

Other things "melted"


More things "melted"


Oven mitts got new jobs.


My must-have tool for trash-day in the Phoenix...


And cars became ovens.

It's a miracle we got through it...

But fear not, Phoenix! Relief is in the forecast.

I guess you know you it's summertime in the Valley when a "cool down" is simply the temps dropping below 110.
