SERV"ICE" JOURNALISM

It’s a hot summer. Please apply these cool, cool pictures of icebergs

Americans living in central and eastern US states are expected to battle triple-digit temperatures this weekend, caused by a weather pattern known as a “heat dome.” Those in the affected regions, stretching from the Central Plains and going as far east as New York City, are encouraged to drink fluids and check on those living without air conditioning.

Wherever you are, for a distraction from scorching summer temperatures, try taking deep breaths, hydrating frequently, and staring longingly at these pictures of fabulous ice formations around the world.
