North Texas families are finding different ways to escape the extreme heat

ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – People in North Texas have found ways to overcome extreme heat over the weekend.

After a few seconds of extreme heat outside, the Douglas family came up with a plan.

“It’s very hot,” said 5-year-old Evelyne Douglas. “I wanted to go to the pool. It’s very comfortable.”

The jump was a road not only for the Douglas family, but also for several other people living in the area.

The Douglas family, like many others, decided that a jump pad was the way to go.

The plans of other families were different.

Parent Adam Rothey said, “We have umbrellas, we have a lot of ice water, we have the boys and the fog fans we bring for their football team.”

The Rothey family has everything they need for their son’s football game. It was the second day of the games in hot weather.

Mother Linda Rothey said, “We’re a little shocked by the heat wave we’re experiencing right now, but we’re enduring it.”

Most of the people drank and camped in the shade. They said it was impossible to avoid the hot weather, but they were happy to see their children having fun.

“Kids have a good time and are safe – you know, as much as we can – but they don’t complain … so it’s good,” Adam said.

As people now find ways to get rid of the heat, many are worried about the future.

“It’s over 100 now, which makes me think summer will be more brutal,” Douglas said.
