People Try To Stay Cool Despite Hot Temperatures

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- If you spent anytime outdoors Tuesday, you certainly felt the heat. This could be the second time in two week Delmarva has experienced a heat wave. The hot weather has impacted everyone on Delmarva, and Kent County is no exception.

We found Ahndrenita Corbitt of Dover on her way home. She’s like many that decided to keep her time in the sun to a minimum.

“I plan on just going home and getting some cool air,” said Corbitt. “It’s waiting for me right now.”

Her main objective was to stay cool.

“Get some water, get plenty of rest, just everything I need to do to stay hydrated,” said Corbitt.

And she wasn’t the only one. Mack Coward Jr. also planned on spending his day inside.

“I’m going back in and getting out of this sun to drink some cold water and watch one of my programs,” said Coward. “I’m a sports guy. I like watching ESPN.”

He says he’s not surprised at how hot and humid the weather has been.

“I really think it’s going to be a really hot humid summer,” said Coward. “We had a terrible winter.”

Not everyone decided to dodge the hot weather. Some people wanted to embrace the heat.

Some people like Matt Kramer of Dover wasn’t bothered by the heat.

“It’s actually a nice day,” said Kramer. “It’s not too bad.”

He planned on having some fun in the sun with some tennis, then going indoors to cool off.

Today’s theme was being to get inside where it’s cool after spending any amount of time outside in this heat.
