“It's actually pretty hot,” Corey Brown said as we caught up with him at the Old Market.
Brown and his daughters found a perfect way to cool off.
“It was to get some lunch and this was some icing on the cake. A nice chance to get some ice cream with my daughters,” Brown said.
He's from Houston, Texas and says this heat is comparable.
“You really gotta make sure you take care of yourself, all those proper things. Wear the sunscreen, staying indoors, air conditioning. All the stuff comes into play,” Brown said.
And not even Frank Sinatra's sounds over the speaker could keep people outside restaurants in the Old Market. We saw a lot of empty tables and chairs.
“We're here to find something to eat,” Krisan Wismer said.
Wismer and her co-pilot stopped in Omaha this morning.
“I heard this morning that Kansas City was 85 at 8 o'clock this morning. So I kind of knew it was gonna be hot,” Wismer said.
She'll be back on a plane Sunday morning.
Perhaps the most bliss about this weather, Jacob and Melissa Kruebs who just got married.
“It's really hot outside but it's a great day and we're all excited,” Jacob said.
Saturday afternoon the two were taking photos in the Old Market, using a small fan to keep cool until the reception.
“I think this is a lot better I was glad with a zero percent change of precipitation,” Melissa said.
When it comes to hot temps, in this case, it's all a matter of perspective.
