Another (One) group of people who are having to face the heat head-on are fair-goers and exhibitors.
The Tuscola county fair has had the interesting fortune of running this year during a week long heat wave.
Beth Rupprecht (ROOP-reck) is on the Tuscola county fair board. She said so far, so good
"Actually things are going very well. We've purchased fans and we have misters on the animal, so they're taking the heat as well as can be expected. Better than many of the people actually"
Rupprecht handles bio-security at the fair. That means she oversees the well being of the animals.
She said so far, they've had to send some rabbits and chickens home due to stress, but otherwise the animals, and exhibitors, are faring well.
