Monday was one of the hottest days so far this summer and that had many of your looking for ways to beat the heat.

"Go to the pool and 3 or 4 hours, then come here afterwards for ice cream. It cools me off and it tastes good,” explained Sue Sullivan as we caught up with her in the line at Briq's ice cream in Wausau.

And the hot weather has sales for area businesses heating up too.

"Business picks up on our busy days when it's hot and sunny a lot more people come in. We would love to help cool people down with some ice cream,” said Briq's shift leader, Krista Hamann.

But the heat isn't a plus for everyone.

Tyler Jagler works close to 10 hours each day in kitchen that can get pretty toasty at Townline Market in Wausau.

“You try to hide in the cooler a little bit more, but besides that stay hydrated and that's all you can do,” he explains for getting through th day.

"There's times where it's 95 degrees in here. People walk up and say 'don't you have air conditioning?' And of course we do we have vent fans, but they just can't keep up,” said owner David Jagler.

Employees at Townline Market say the key is to persevere.

"The heat is the heat. You know, you really can't change anything. It's not going to change my daily things I do so just kinda deal with it,” explained Tyler.
