Many construction workers were working outside in today's near-triple digit heat, especially at the Dulles Metrorail work site in Northern Virginia.
Today was not a good day to be building a new train line.
"Miserable, man," truck driver Mark Vaughn says. "Just look around you. People sweating...Ain't no smile on nobody's face in weather like this."
Vaughn is preparing his semi-truck for a ride back to his home in Richmond. Earlier this summer, Dulles Metrorail workers were sent home early on hot days.
But not today. Vaughn says the only way to get through these days is to think about "getting the job done. Getting back home. Looking out for family."
Vaughn says this summer's heat is the worst he can remember.
