We are definitely in the middle of the dog days of Summer here in Ocean County. This week we've had the stifling humidity and high temperatures, so people have had to get creative to beat the heat.

As you can see in the photo above, a lot of people are turning to the beach to escape the heat today.

Today is a perfect beach day, too. With a great sea breeze and cooler temperatures, as opposed to away from the shore, this is the place to be if you want to get outside!

Thankfully, it's not as humid as it has been the last few days, but cars and buildings without good air conditioning can be pretty unpleasant on days like this (and, of course, it's always important to remind people that cars are no place for pets on these days!).

So how do you beat the heat on days like this? Tell us in the comments section!
