Heat inches up in southwestern CT driving locals to beaches
Thermometers climbed in Connecticut Sunday, stopped in the upper 80s and drove uncomfortable locals to beaches and shade.
Splashing, skiing and wading in the water were what cooled many at Calf Pasture Beach as temperatures climbed steadily into the high 80s. And while there were complaints about the heat from some, others said they kept their cool by drinking plenty of water and reminding themselves that hot summer days are the ones they look forward to in frigid January.
Cool shade was in short supply, unlike the sunscreen many slathered on to prevent sun burns.
