5 Things that tell you it's too damn HOT in Yakima:


1.) We've decided to stop calling it "The Palm Springs of Washington" and go with "The Frostbite Falls of Washington" just so we can feel a little cooler about the heat.

2.) The radio station transmitter blows a breaker due to 100-degree temperatures and knocks the station off the air for days.

3.) You drink a gallon and a half of water and end up going to the bathroom seven times a day ... which is good and bad.

4.) Five new pop up sno-cone stands open for the eight days of extreme heat, then close and disappear until the next wave of 100-degree weather.

5.) Nobody in line at the coffee stands is buying hot coffee -- all the orders are for iced drinks.
