Some workers heating up, some keeping cool on the job
When you have hot, muggy weather, many people just want to sit and relax and not think about doing much. And because no one really wants to be in the kitchen cooking dinner, many are ordering out for dinner. YNN's Erin Connolly has more on some of the people working over a hot stove and others who are keeping cool.

TROY, N.Y. -- Cooling off when the heat is on is something many people do to beat the heat. Others, just head to work.
Jason Barno, an employee at The Beverage Barn in Troy, said, "When you come in here, it's like a breath of fresh air.''
Jason Barno works at The Beverage Barn in Troy. He gets to stay cool by carting beer into the cooler set at a refreshing 38 degrees.
Barno said, "You can't beat it. I'd rather be in and out coming in here all day long than staying out there for two seconds.''
And while some jobs help you beat the heat, others don't afford you that luxury.
Rocco DeFazio, the owner of DeFazio's pizza, said, "Hot, hot, hot. It's awfully hot back there.''
At DeFazio's pizza in Troy, employees are sweating it out next to a wood fired oven.
DeFazio said, "You have to be used to it. This is the kind of day where you don't want to have someone start work on a day like today because they'll say this isn't for me.''
And they've been even busier with people choosing not to turn on their own ovens.
DeFazio said, "Nobody wants to cook in this weather. That all want it to be delivered. They don't even want to pick it up. They want it delivered. They don't even want to pick it up. They want it delivered so they don't have to move."
And when the mercury rises, it's clear, some jobs are better than others.
Valentino Fiacco Jr., the owner of The Beverage Barn, said, "I don't want to be a pizza delivery guy or a pizza maker today.''
DeFazio said, "Oh beverage center, they have it easy. Guys walking into those fridges, they have it easy.''
Temperatures remained in the 90s for the second day of the summer. Many people are hoping it cools off for the weekend.
