Heat still means business for many

Posted: Updated:

Many business owners still have to brave the heat. We talked to Ricardo Gonzalez this afternoon as he sold pine straw by Diddy's Detail on Dawson Road.

He says even though it's been hot, he's getting good business, So is the car wash right next to him.

With the heat index climbing well into the triple digits, he says he's doing all he can to cool off while on the job.

"Drink a lot of water and try to stay out of the sun as much as you can," said Ricardo Gonzalez. "You're always exposed to the sun and just try to get used to it."

Gonzalez has been selling pine straw here for two years. Despite the heat, he'll keep on working.
