Yes, those are street lights — melting!
The photo is from Stillwater, Oklahoma, where AccuWeather.com says it is currently 103°F. But if feels like 113°F.
UPDATE: A commenter pointed out that the bulbs are melting due to a nearby dumpster fire. Still, Patrick Hunter, the reader who sent in the photos believes the drooping was caused by the combined effects of the sun’s heat and the close-by fire. He writes on KFOR-TV’s Facebook page:
Being the person that actually took this photo, I’d say that this was due to a fire semi-close by coupled with the unbelievable heat we are experiencing. Still an amazing photo and not fake as many are saying on here. Enjoy!
