As temperatures in the Carbondale, Illinois area remain consistently in the upper-80’s and lower 90’s, local dad Gregg Jefferies has set an area record by asking his neighbor, “Another scorcher, eh?” for the 12th day in a row.
The line has generally been accompanied with an exclamation such as, “Hoo boy,” “Boy, let me tell ya” or “Yowza!”
“Well, what can I say?” Jefferies responded when asked about his record-breaking greeting streak. “The sun sure is working overtime these days, right?”
He then dramatically wiped sweat from his forehead, and uttered, “Woo-ee!”
