Fun Places In The Treasure Valley To Beat The Heat This Week
Yesterday I was out and about town. My first stop was at Kleiner park in Meridian for the Family Reunion Volkswagen car show put on by The Bus Pilots Association. I showed up at noon and by 2pm the sun was cooking every inch of bare skin on my body. I got in the car and headed to the co-op from some groceries and as I walked from car to the store I couldn't help but think about how much hotter it was going to b e this coming week. Let's face it as hot as it felt today it was only in the mid 90's, this coming week promises to be at least 10 degrees hotter and Wednesday it's supposed to get to 107. If you do not have a pool at home or in your community, these fun places in the Treasure Valley to beat the heat compliments of ktvb will come in handy.
