I think I have collected so many Texas Summer Memes at this point that it only makes sense to pile them together and share the wealth. If you haven’t been counting, DFW has now reached over 38 days of temperatures exceeding 100° degrees, sporting 18 consecutive days of triple digit temps. (Only 18 days?! Really?!)

What is a Texan to do other than make jokes and laugh our way through one of the hottest summers since 1986? Without further ado, here are several Texas Heat Memes to help you laugh your way through this unrelenting Texas Summer.

Texas Heat Memes

skeleton being blown apart by fire with caption I'm going to go outside and enjoy the nice breeze. the breeze:

We are basically living in an air fryer.

Ron Swanson glares next to forecast of triple digit temps and the text "here comes the sun"

I have Resting Ron Face pretty much every time I am forced to open the door.

Brad Pitt stands staring at a table full of paperwork with words "ERCOT trynna figure out how to convince Texans that 95 is "room" temperature

Of course, no Texas Heat Memes would be complete without a few good ERCOT memes as well. They really did try to convince us, bless their hearts.

wheel of fortune board that's empty with text "loses power in hot & cold" with 5 letters

Honestly, this could go two ways. I’d like to buy an “E”, please.

A woman wears a necklace of ice with text "summer fashion in texas"

At this point, anything is worth a shot.

tweet reads ERCOT last winter: look, the grid's just not built to handle cold" ERCOT summer '22: y'all ain't gonna believe this but turns out the grid can't handle heat either lol"

In a not-so-shocking turn of events, Texans learn that ERCOT is not just woefully unprepared for cold weather–they are woefully unprepared for weather in general.

If you need me, I will be in the freezer section of Costco until November.

wicked witch of the east melting with text "them: don't be so dramatic this summer me:"

This feels like a personal attack. I am here for Texas Heat Memes, not judgement.

For the first time ever, I am ahead of schedule!

flip flops made of ice trays with text "flip flops for the texas heat"

These are going to go great with my new necklace!

Big tex on fire with text "dallas be like it's summer, folks!"

Too soon, internet. Too soon.

bottle cap sits outside with the text "new texas rain gauge"

I think I felt a raindrop last week, but it might have just been my imagination.

the office meme with pam yelling as ercot "stop using energy" and michael yelling back as texas residents "you know what, i'm gonna start using energy even more!"

I believe it’s called demand avoidance?

HAH, I knew it!

Church sign that reads "too hot to keep changing sign. Sin bad, jesus good, details inside"

Fair enough.

man standing at a fire with text "opening your front door today in texas"

It’s not that I don’t want to check my mail, I just can’t.

sponge bob on fire vs fish on fire but doesn't care with text "people who visit texas vs people who live in texas"

Just another day in the oven.

a man looks at a single water drop and asks "is this rain" with the text "live footage of north texas"

Remember when water used to fall from the sky and everything outside wasn’t in a state of crisis?

ceiling fans melting with text "the best way to explain texas summers to someone who does not live there

For what it’s worth, I am surrounded by some excellent fans that have not melted (yet).

Everyday, he’s hustlin’.

sponge bob on fire being tucked in by the sun with text "but oh, those summer nights"

John Travolta tried to warn us.

faucet with labels "hot water" and "not as hot water" and text that reads "you may be from texas if you understand this"

I have to double check at least twice a day.

If you can stand the heat to look at it, you will be blown away. (By the blazing breeze, of course.)

person in a sleeping bag in a full pool with text "me as soon as texas has its iconic 3 months of 100 heat"

Honestly, I thought Margaritaville would look… different.

ice cream truck melting into the sidewalk with text "meanwhile in texas"

I said I wasn’t going to chase you down, and I meant it, Sam. Now get out of the truck and stop being so dramatic.

Not a big fan of the heat?

Well, that puts you in the company of about 28 million other folks, give or take a few Texans. I can’t make this unrelenting heat go away, and I know these Texas Heat Memes will only take you so far. When you need an extra boost, an extra breeze, or an extra break from this intense Texas Summer, check out How to Stay Cool at Outdoor Events.
