The extreme temperatures have some ice cream shops working extra hard.
A manager at Klines Dairy Bar in Harrisonburg says usually July brings fewer customers because people are on vacation.
But this week's soaring temperatures have brought more people wanting ice cream.
And the heat is also bringing on some extra work.
It's a team effort keeping all that ice cream cool.
Meagan Hoke is a Shift Manager at Kline's says, "It makes the A/C work a little harder just because with the window opening, the hot air coming in that puts more pressure on the A/C.
The freezer's, it just depends on the flavoring and how hot it gets. We just have to be extra cautious about what we're doing and pay more attention to it."
Hoke predicts that people will be willing to brave the heat this week to get some ice cream.
