This summer is showing itself to be a scorcher, at least here in the south with temperatures soaring into the high 90s and heat indexes reaching into the 105 degree or more range. The community pool has been packed for the past several days, but if you’re a grown-up and you want to kick back and enjoy something cold and refreshing – this is exactly what the doctor ordered to beat the summer heat!
