July 29, 2009 shattered temperature records all around the Northwest.
The only air conditioning we have is in the car, so we took a drive around Tacoma in the afternoon on that hottest day ever to escape the heat.
Digital thermometer readings we noted on our tour:
- 104 degrees at Tacoma Mall
- 105 degrees at 56th & South Tacoma Way
- 106 degrees at South 96th & Hosmer
- 111 degrees at South 84th Street
