HOT.

The End.

Huh?

What?

No?

Not the end?

Nope.

Sorry.

It ain’t over yet.

Still HOT.

More HOT.

Even HOTTER.

HOT.

Hace calor hoy.

And tomorrow.

And the day after tomorrow.

‘Tis summer.

‘Tis the season.

‘Tis August.

Il fait chaud.

Dry, too.

Drouthy.

Drains the wells.

And one’s energy.

Dries up the tanks.

Distresses the livestock.

The flora and fauna.

And the pocketbook.

More feed.

Less cattle.

More water.

More wells.

More pumps.

More ice, please.

Mein Gott.

Es ist heibes Wetter.

Time for a Dillo Bar from DQ.

Or ice cream from Good to Go.

Or Willow Creek Café.

Ice tea from Square Plate.

A wine-arita from Santos Taqueria.

Lemonade from Weber Chevron.

Libations at the Old Peanut Mill.

Cold drinks from Northside Café.

But best of all—water.

Essential.

Irreplaceable.

Quenches the thirst.

From Mi Pueblo.

And Nacho’s Cafe.

Agua frio, por favor.

That’s Mason.
