Scranton, Lackawanna County - The first day of summer brought blistering temperatures to northeastern and central Pennsylvania.
Many places soared above the 90-degree mark.
While many people tried to stay indoors, some people had no choice but to be outdoors. It's their job.
One of the hottest jobs we found was on Mulberry Street in Scranton where crews were milling and paving the street.
"I love it," William Michael said."
Like many in his crew, Michael says working in the hot weather is all about keeping hydrated and taking quick breaks.
Water was almost everywhere we looked.
"I don't mind it. I'm used to it. Just bring a lot of water, Gatorade," Tom Paterick said.
"You gotta do what you gotta do," Michael said. "I've been doing it for 40 years."
With the sun blazing down, workers from All American Lawn Care in Scranton also couldn't head indoors.
They didn't like the heat as much.
"The humidity is the worst. The sweat just pours off you. You've gotta keep drinking water, keep going," Ron Kleckler said.
Of course, the dedicated men of the Scranton DPW were also on the job, no matter the heat.
"Just try to get through the day, just try to get through this heat," Jack McTague said. "This heat is a brutal day, stay cool, lots of water."
