Heat Exhaustion

MOOSIC — For five days, it has been sweltering, simmering and stifling.

After a long work week and of course a heat wave, people were cooling down at Damenti’s Restaurant near Mountain Top.

The patio bar is cooled with a seven-ton refrigeration system.

“Everybody wants air conditioning this time of year. I mean, can you imagine when they didn’t have it?” said Kevin McDonald, restaurant owner and chef.

At The Snack Shack in Wilkes-Barre Township, folks were enjoying a frosty treat Friday night.

Six-year-old Naomi Wharton of Kingston slurped her ice cream cone as she explained how she keeps cool.

“Going in the pool and staying in the house when it’s cold and the weather. “

At Locust Lake State Park in Schuylkill County, many were camping during the heat wave, coping with muggy, buggy weather by taking occasional dips in the lake.

Cool Start To Memorial Day Weekend

TUSCARORA STATE PARK — Many people are spending their Memorial Day weekend out in the woods camping. The unseasonable weather calls for bigger campfires.

With temperatures in the 40s, no one was swimming at Tuscarora State Park near Mahanoy City.  At nearby Locust Lake State Park there were a lot of people camping.  The campfires are a bit bigger, too. Teshia Wilson said that’s because of the unseasonably cool weather.

“We figured a lot of people might not want to do it, especially that a storm was coming, but figured we’re going to rough it. It was a great trip from Wilmington. It wasn’t that far and I encourage people to take advantage of state parks.”

Zuzana Miller explained when she and her friends arrived and began to set up camp the weather was threatening.

“It was rough last night, definitely. We set up the tent before it started pouring but it was fun.”
