Even though heat indices were over a hundred degrees Monday these landscapers say it's just another day for them.

"I don't pay any attention to it because I've got to be outside in it. So I'm not going to worry about it."

Brock Moore says he grew up on a farm and working outside is in his blood so he wouldn't have it any other way.

Moore says: "I've tried to work indoors but it just didn't work for me. You can't hear the birds, smell the fresh air. I like being outside."

Since he's used to working on scorching days he's got some advice for anyone else who has to.

Moore says: "Drink some water. If your clothes get wet it helps out quite a bit."

This extreme heat affects everyone especially those who work outside for a living.

Moore says: "The heat itself hurts. It hurts right there. Knowing you have to be out there in it. Sweating in it. It's hard."

After a day of hard work and lots of sweat, Moore says he just likes to go home and relax.

Moore says: "You're probably going to think I'm crazy. But I like to take a hot shower."
