For some people who work outside, the first day of a summer heat wave is always the worst.
"You get used to the heat - usually about September of October," joked Scott Moore who has worked for the Jackson County Department of Transportation for 13 years.
In past jobs, Moore says he suffered from heat stroke, so he takes extra precautions with his current position to stay healthy.
"When it's really really hot out - a lot hotter than today - when you stop sweating is when you start getting in trouble," Moore said. He says you know you are experiencing heat stroke when "you get dizzy and nauseous and sometimes (you) pass out."
He and his co-worker repave roads and the equipment they work with gets as hot as 140 degrees. The inside of the truck they drive doesn't have air conditioning and can heat up to 100 degrees. So they drink ample amounts of water and gatorade before they ever start feeling thirsty.
Nancy Hemry owns TJ's Freeze, an ice cream shop in Jackson. She says this time of year is good for business. And although she works in an air-conditioning, she has other hazards of the job to deal with.
Hemry says customers often get mad when their ice cream melts quickly and some of them, take it out on her.
"They'll throw their ice cream at you and you'll notice it's coming so you real quick shut the window," Hemry said with a laugh.
