Some Like It Hot

If you went outside at all today you certainly don't need us to tell you that it's hot. Last week's cool front is officially over with the heat index above 100 degrees today.

Construction workers and police officers don't have a choice, they're paid to brave the warm temperatures and get the job done. But we found some people who actually prefer the heat.

We found April Sanchez reading a book outside. "It's freezing in our office building so I kind of needed a change. I came out here so I'm not so cold," says April.

Dewayne Wright spent his morning cycling. "I just moved here from California. The heat is what attracted me to this place," says Dewayne.

Experts remind us, when you do have to be outdoors for a long time, drink plenty of water and take breaks as often as possible. Also don't forget your sunscreen.
