Midstaters find ways to beat the heat

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Water and ice proved to be great ways to beat the summer heat wave as most of us fought to stay cool.

With temperatures in the 90's, plenty of people packed the Hampden Township pool to make a splash. The 82-degree water made for a refreshing afternoon respite for those of all ages.

"It's definitely a pool day," Bill Whisler from Silver Spring Township said.

There's a little something for everyone there. You can take a swim in the pool, take a trip down the water slide or even clown around in the interactive spray ground.

To stay cool others, however, turned to the ice.

"It's cool. I really love coming to the ice rink," skater Roxy Toner said.

A afternoon public skating session at Twin Ponds East had a handful of skaters enjoying the chilly temperature. Some didn't even wearing shorts sleeves.

"I feel pretty comfortable in shorts, even in the cold," Robin Toner said.

She also admitted that its very hot outside, which is saying something because her family is from Pensacola, Florida.

Officials have released heat warnings all over the area urging residents to stay cool and hydrated.
