But, a record 93 degree high in San Jose had families doing just that.

One patron at Jacobs Farms said he was going to bring his family on Saturday, but thought it was too windy and cold! He laughed as he fanned his face in the heat.

Also feeling the heat-the director of track and field and cross country at San Jose State University.

He coached athletes for hours in the baking sun. But, he said the weather is good for the jumpers as they don't have to warm up as much -- as long as they stay hydrated.
