I took to Lakewood Patch's Facebook page (please "Like" if you haven't already) Thursday afternoon with the following question:
What's everyone drinking today to stay cool? Ice water? Gatorade? Pepsi? Talk to me, Lakewood.
It prompted an array of responses. Here are some of my favorites:
"iced tea - northernstyle - no sugar!" - Clarene
"Cold beer!" - Renee
"water, water, water....now that it is 5 o"clock vodka cran with lime over ice." - Angela
"Toffee-nut Frappucino from Starbucks in Albertsons on Steilacoom!!!" - Genevieve
"A chilled Roussanne from Lakewood's winery Stina's Cellars" - Penny
"ice water and moscato! :P" - Katherine
Thursday was hot. Today is expected to be just as hot, if not hotter. As in, 93 degrees hot, according to the National Weather Service.
So we ask you, Patch users, what will you be sipping today to stay cool? Tell us in the comments, or better yet, snap a picture of you and your drink and share it here by clicking the "Upload Photos and Video" button.
