Beating the Pueblo heat

PUEBLO, Colo. — Triple-digit weather has taken over Pueblo. Residents in the area took to city pools and ice cream shops to try to cool off.

“I hate it,” said Pueblo resident Stephanie Garcia. “I’d rather be in the mountains where it’s cooler sometimes.”

Some folks said staying inside is actually worse, and being in the water is their choice for beating the heat.

“It was extremely hot today and I don’t think we could have stayed in the house and cooled off,” said Jennifer Vittetoe, who brought her kids to a city pool in Pueblo.

Ice cream shops like Taffy’s said they are slammed during the summer.

“We get anywhere between 200-300 customers a day,” said Taffy’s employee Briana Krueger.
