(as) hot as the dickens

old-fashioned, slang Extremely and uncomfortably hot. On summer days in Texas, when it's hot as the dickens outside, there's nothing quite like a tall glass of sweet tea. I hate working in the theme park during the summer, because it's as hot as the dickens in the costumes they make us wear.
