If you think it's hot in Tucson...

…the capital of our neighbor to the south — Hermosillo, Sonora — may be hotter. The thermometer that's blowing its top is part of a mural along Calle Pino Suárez.

Like most of the rest of the world, Mexico uses temperatures in Celsius. A temperature of 20C is 68F. A temperature of 66C, as this thermometer showed before it blew its top, is 150F. Hmmm.

The thermometer is at the left edge of the city map mural below.
And that mural is at the right (closest) end of a mural gallery, partly hidden behind a tree:
The sign on the barrier in front of the parking lot translates as “Sure, there will be sun tomorrow.”

I was there on March 29th when the temperature was only 27C. (I don't know what it will be today, but I'm glad I'm in “cool” Tucson now!)
