SALISBURY, Md.- On most days Carla Moales would easily be found jogging through Salisbury City Park but this heat wave has begun to cut her daily routine in half.

"Today is quite hot, very hot, I started half way down the park and I decided to turn around and come back because it's a little too hot not even my bottle of water is enough!," she said.

Over on the playground a grandmother started her day early alongside her grandson who had just gotten two teeth filled and still insisted to play in the sun.

"Had to bring my grandson to the dentist and then he wanted to come here and play so its never too hot for a kid," she said. 

Although some chose to spend the heat wave at the park, others had to get up and work under the scorching hot sun.

Ryan Thompson, a Maryland State Highway Administration construction worker, spent his day wiping the sweat from his forehead, he says his job gets ten times harder when the mercury soars.

"Working around machinery, you know black top and everything, gets real hot, just makes it 10 times hotter working out in this heat" he said.

As for the rest of this week, there's no relief in sight. In fact, it's expected to feel even hotter.

This week's heat wave is prompting the opening of cooling stations in some parts of Delmarva. To find a cooling center in your area, click here.
