With many of us scratching our heads and wondering where the fall weather is, we’re not alone. CNN reported that 162 heat records have likely been broken across the United States this past week. Although Summit county didn’t feel the 90-plus-degree heat that other cities were encountering, residents did notice that things have been unseasonably warm.
What to do when you can’t cozy up with a hot autumn cider and blanket? Hit the beach, of course!
