Pacific Northwest residents are accustomed to all things temperate (weather and “polite” demeanor included), but this month has been exception: Record hot temperatures throughout the region pushed Puget Sounders into lakes, sprinklers and frozen yogurt shops. On Friday, Crosscut asked for readers to submit photos on Facebook of the best way to beat the heat this summer. Below are a few of their submissions.
