Albany-- These record high temperatures aren't just uncomfortable. They're dangerous. Many of you can escape the heat most of the day but a lot of workers don't have that option.
It felt hot as fire in Albany Tuesday. Bank signs showed 105-degrees at 4:00 in the afternoon. "Oh I sweat a lot," said Albany Parking Detail Worker Mary Price.
4 p.m. was around the same time we found Mary Price. You may have been fortunate or unfortunate to have met her.
"When I'm out here, I mark the tires at the beginning of one hour in the 200 block of Pine and in an hour I come back and mark them and give them a ticket. In the two hour, it's the same way," said Price.
So she makes her way around downtown with umbrella in hand. "It keeps the sun out of my face," said Price.
She hits the hot pavement, marking cars. It's a demanding job but she likes it. She only has one complaint. "Now it's pretty hot," said Price.
But outside isn't the only place where the temperatures can get unbearable. "It's hotter in here than it is outside," said Danielle Prince.
Danielle Prince spends hours inside, in the heat of a dry-cleaning business. The only thing to cool her off are fans blowing hot air. "You don't realize how much they help until they get turned off," said Prince.
She does her best to stay cool. "Drinking plenty of fluids. That's really the only way to do it," said Prince.
Back outside, that's also the game plan for Mary Price. "Drink a lot of water and you know, try to get in the shade periodically," said Price.
They're hot jobs but somebody has to do them. So the next time you see downtown Mary or dry-cleaning Danielle working hard in the heat, you may not be so quick to complain.
"No, they don't have any sympathy when you give them a ticket," laughs Price.
Price does get to ride around in a cart to the different streets downtown. She says that does help with the heat a bit.
