Many people in Richmond have no power, which means no AC. Richmond is hot today, and will be all summer long. If you live in an apartment in Glen Allen, you are used to the heat. We have beautiful pool facilities at our luxury apartment homes at the Gardens at Twin Hickory, take advantage of it this week!
We are seeing some extreme heat; temperatures we haven’t seen in a while. Drink plenty of water and if you are looking for some ways to stay cool, here are a few:
Skate Nation in Glen Allen is a great way to beat the heat. In fact, today until 3pm, you can skate for free.
