June 19 — On a day when the heat index spiraled into the triple digits, Oscar Grider hit the pool at Balcones District Park in search of a little relief for his family. “Bringing the grandkids, getting out of the heat. Right. Turning the air conditioner off for a little bit,” he said. The air conditioner gets a lot of use this time of year. “My kids like it about 76. I try to keep it around 78.”
