People trying to stay cool during this heat wave

Posted:

Some business owners and even retirees are having to find ways to keep cool this week.

"It's kind of hot and humid out," said Curbside Food Truck Owner Gabriel Rager.

And it's even hotter over the grill, where Gabriel Rager cooks his homemade flatbreads.

We met up with Gabriel at his food truck, Curbside, in Warsaw Tuesday. It was already about 85 degrees out and he says it felt at least ten degrees worse by the grill.

"I'm the only one who knows how to cook here," said Rager. 

That means no breaks for Gabriel, leaving only a few things he can do to beat the heat.

"We have a couple fans to cool us down and just keep hydrated," said Rager. "That's pretty much it. "

In other parts of Warsaw, people relied on nature to keep cool. While some took a dip in the water at Center Lake, retirees Wayne and Rosemary Hughart found a little shade.

"Just sitting underneath this tree just a'fishin by the lake with a nice cool breeze comin' from the water," said Winamac resident Rosemary Hughart.

Her husband Wayne says because of a medical condition, he has to be extra careful when the temperatures climb.

"It's supposed to be up in the 90s and humid they say, so we came out here early in the morning and then we go home," said Winemac Resident Wayne Hughart.

Home is where most people will be hiding out until the heat breaks. But Rosemary says that for now, the shade is good enough.

"Course it'd be cooler at home in the air conditioning, but at home we don't have a lake, we don't have the breeze, not outside," said Hughart. "It's much nicer being out here."
