The heat goes on

Kristine Roberts put her red bathing suit in the freezer Saturday morning before she went to work as a lifeguard at the Sonora High School swimming pool.

With temperatures well above the 100-degree mark, Roberts knew it would be a long day out in the heat.

Children and their parents romped in the welcoming waters of the pool over the weekend, including a few dozen kids from Turlock who are staying near Pinecrest Lake. Their day's activities included a tour of Moaning Caverns and a stop at the swimming pool.

And, though it was hot, it might have actually been cooler than it was throughout the week.

"I think yesterday was hotter," Roberts said.

Her fellow lifeguard, Alicia Greenleaf said, "It was so hot yesterday, I had a wet towel on me all day."

Greenleaf suggests this as a technique to keep cool.

"It really works — it really does," she said.

The gals in red and their counterparts weren't too busy Saturday. Weekends are usually slower than weekdays, they said, because parents often drop their kids off at the pool and head to work during the week.

Temperatures and humidity stayed high all weekend, and people hoping for a break in the heat will be disappointed — the National Weather Service is predicting more of the same for the rest of the week, with highs near 105 and lows near 70. There's a chance of thunderstorms tonight in the high country.
