YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW HOW HOT IT IS OUTSIDE UNTIL
YOU HAVE TO WORK IN IT.
KXLY-4'S JOHN HENDRICKS SHOWS US ONE OF THE HOTTEST
JOBS IN TOWN...
If you are trying to beat the heat being on a hot
roof might not be the best idea.
Temperatures on the roof behind me can reach up to
120 degrees maybe even further the folks I talked
to today say it's all in a days work.
WITH THE SUN BEATING DOWN.
THE MERCURY RISING BY THE MINUTE.
MONTAGE OF NATS
THE SCORTCHING HEAT ISN'T STOPPING THIS ROOFING COMPANY
FROM GETTING THE JOB DONE.
It's pretty hot up there.
PEDRO ORTEGA SPENDS HIS DAYS WORKING NEXT TO 500-DEGREE
You get use to it, but like you said you got to start
early in the morning.
If you start like right now.
you don't want to do it.
HE ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHERS WORKING LONG OURS TO
PUT A NEW ROOF ON WINDSOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.
HE SAYS STAYING HYDRATED IS KEY.
Well, we have 15 gallons up there and plus we have
bottles we have to put in the ice and keep putting
them in the ice.
You have enough water or powerade or whatever you
need and make sure you keep sucking it down.
TONY CAPRILE AGREES.
EVERY TWO HOURS THIS GROUP TAKES A TEN MINUTE BREAK
THEN IT'S BACK TO WORK.
NOTICE THEIR CLOTHS.
THIS ISN'T A JOB FOR SHORTS AND FLIP FLOPS.
Provided I have a nice brim on my hat you almost don't
notice the heat.
Not everybody likes and like I said, somebody has
got to do it.
THE GOOD NEWS IN ALL OF THIS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL
DAYS OUR HOT WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO COME TO AN END.
REPORTING IN CHENEY TONIGHT.
