The National Weather Service predictions for this weekend in Grand Junction read, "Sunny and hot, with a high near 100." No fun, Dr. Jones. That's a little too toasty for some of our favorite outdoor activities in this part of the world.

Things To Do When It Hits 100

The Bacardi Mixers webpage offers a list of "100 Things To Do When It's 100 Degrees." You'll find that very few of these suggestions include activities one might expect to find on someone's bucket list. A few examples would be:

  • Close your eyes and pretend it's winter
  • Do a rain dance
  • Call a friend who lives someplace hotter
  • Get a buzz cut
