Starting Friday Mid Columbia temperatures are supposed to climb above 100 degrees. The weekend and next week they could reach or exceed 110! Here are some ways to stay safe!

 

  • 1

    Big, Ice-Cold Soda Pop

    Some places are selling 32 oz. or even 44 oz. drinks for $0.89!

  • 2

    Go Watch TV in Bars and Restaurants

    Order a couple drinks and appetizers every hour and enjoy their air conditioning.

    Splash Parks

    Honestly, this is only fun if you have kids... and then it's only fun for the kids. But it's cool!

    Jump in the River

    Make sure you know the beach is safe! 4 people have died already this year playing in the rivers. Several parks have roped off beaches deemed safe.

    Buy Ice and Make Home-Made Air Conditioners

    Several Youtube tutorials show you how to cool a room with a block of ice and some buckets.

    Go to the Pool

    It's a lot safer than the rivers, but you never know how many kids peed in there! Joking aside, I love the pool!

    Go Ice Blocking

    Buy a couple blocks of ice and bring some old towels. Put the towel on the ice for a saddle and slide down the hill on the ice!

  • 8

    Go to a Movie

    Go see one of the awesome blockbusters out now!

  • 9

    Walk Around the Mall

    There's a million things to look at in the mall -- even kids love it -- and it's nice and cool.

    Go camping

    You maybe should just get out of town this weekend! Go up to Leavenworth, or see Mt. Rainier.
