It was record breaking heat in Laredo, as the themometor hit a whopping 109 degrees. Heatwaves records show the last time it got nearly this hot, on this date, was in 1994. It was 108 degrees back then. And although today was even hotter, Lareodans remained active. Basketball, swimming, and baseball were among some peoples to do list Saturday afternoon. For these players it was a cause for Special Olympics that kept them going, as the sun beamed down on the field. Like many today, these players beat the heat, even at 109 degrees.
