SHARE CAPTION ONLY: FRANKLIN QUEST SEATS GET A COOLING OFF

Jose Rodriguez of the Franklin Quest Field grounds crew hoses down spectator seats with a high-powered water spray to keep the seats cool. July 1996 will go down on record as Salt Lake City's fifth hottest in history, and rainfall totals were just 51 percent of normal. The National Weather Service said daily high temperatures reached 95 degrees 21 times in July and hit the century mark five times. Utahns usually can expect more rain in late summer as precipitation works its way up from Mexico, but it's still impossible to tell if rainfall will increase and temperatures decrease, the weather service said.
