Temperatures hit record highs Wednesday and for those with time on their hands, the pool was easily the best option for beating the heat. Above, Austin Isenhour, 3, hangs on to the handle bars in the safety of his floatie at the Eagle Ridge pool while he cools down in the water. At left, one girl does a hand stand, while others play in the water. A sprinkler sucks up the warm water from the pool and sprays it back out as cool water. The lifeguard on duty said the pool water had gotten so hot the previous day that it felt like bathwater.
