The Best Reactions to Philly’s Tuesday Heat Wave
It’s a scorcher, folks.
Today’s the third (and final) day of an excessive heat wave that brought highs in the 90s, a heat advisory until 7 p.m. tonight, a code orange air quality alert and early school closures.
Some people love the early summer weather. Some people hate it. Some just want to seek AC stat – and we have a guide for that.
Either way, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite reactions to the high temps.
We’ll kick it off with the pure joy of these students from the John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School, who took part in the tradition of leaping into the Swann Memorial Fountain at Logan Square on the last day of their school year:

The problem is these teachers and students are soft. Would never survived the heat and brutality of the wrestling room!
