We haven't seen many triple digit days like today this summer, but they're still unbearable for some Salt Lake City residents no matter how often they happen.

For only the third day this season, we've hit the century mark. One woman said, "I think it's hot." I replied, "I think you're right." We were too hot to argue.

People in Salt Lake City are beating the heat any way they can. One lady said, "You go in the shops, they're pretty nice and cool." I told her it sounded like an excuse to go shopping, to which she said, "Exactly."

Some tourists from Washington State said they don't get heat like we have today. One said, "It's pretty nice at home right now." Others from Central California say this is nothing. A nice woman from Cupertino said, "It's a dry heat, which to me is bearable." A man from Cache Valley said he actually thought it was pretty humid.

Overall, it is still cooler than last summer when we had 17 days of triple-digit weather.
