WebXtra: How hot is your job?

By Courtney Lane - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - We are starting a series called

The Hottest Jobs in East Texas

. We'll feature a new one each day. We want your input and suggestions! At the end of the series we will pick our

Hottest Job


Wednesday we ran into Eston Parson of Tyler, who just so happens to be building a baby crib for his first child. He's planning on finishing the project all in one day and it is a scorcher. Our trusty thermometer was already reading close to 120 degrees at mid-afternoon. (We'll run that by Mark Scirto).

We'll feature Eston's story on KLTV at 6 p.m. Remember, we want to hear from you. Do you or someone you know have a hot job? Maybe a roofer, construction worker, etc.

Determining factors in choosing a winner will be their access to water and breaks, if they're working in the shade or not, and also how long they'll be baking in the Texas sun. We look forward to hearing from you!
