Nice way to beat the heat

ALBION – A group of boaters passed through Albion along the Erie Canal this morning a little after 10. I don’t see too many caravans like this in the canal.
The big boaters passed through on a day when Orleans County is under a heat advisory. The National Weather Service says we’ll reach a high of 94 degrees today.
The heat advisory is in effect from 1 to 9 p.m. when the heat index values will range from 100 to 104.
“If proper precautions are not taken, heat exhaustion or other heat-related symptoms could develop in those exposed to the hot and humid conditions,” the Weather Service advised.
There is a little breeze today, which helps make the heat more bearable. Being on a boat would also help.
The boaters head west on the canal from the Main Street lift bridge. In the foreground is a bollard used to tie up boats.
