Sitting in your refrigerator to cope with record-setting heat
At 12:15 p.m., the weather station at USC hit the 113-degree mark, breaking the old all-time high of 112 set June 26, 1990.
That made Monday the hottest day ever since records in downtown L.A. started being kept in 1877, said Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service.
L.A. Now readers have been submitting photos of how they're coping with the heat. Here, user napos616 posts an image from a car dashboard thermometer reading 121 degrees. The caption reads:
"121F in the car read out driving around Glendale, CA during lunch hour."
"When it's 108 degrees outside and your air conditioner isn't exactly doing the job, extreme measures must be taken. :)"
