The hottest guys in Montco

Sometimes, your job just doesn't care about the temperature outside. And so it went for three workers pouring a concrete sidewalk in front of the Plymouth Meeting Whole Foods Market.

The hottest guys in Montco



So, you say the air conditioning in your office is sketchy in the best of conditions, but doesn't even begin to keep up during a heat wave like, say, the one we're experiencing now? Well, enjoy what you've got by thinking of those who've got not — in a matter of speaking. With the temperature in the mid-90s, brothers Nick and George Ceniviva and colleague Brian Neely, were out pouring a concrete sidewalk in front of the Whole Foods Market at Plymouth Meeting Mall. They had a large orange jug of water nearby, but it just didn't seem to be enough of an antidote to the blitz of shvitz on their foreheads.

The crew, including the concrete mixer truck driver who got to stay in the cab, had been outside working since about 8:30 a.m., and at 1 p.m. figured they had another hour or so to go. Some passersby looked at them with that "oh my goodness, I can't believe they're working outside in this weather" look. Employees at Whole Foods came out to check on them and offer water and cups (further evidence of my contention that most people are good and decent).

Nick Ceniviva, 22, of Ambler, said the heat made for "good tanning weather." His strategy for working outside? Be sure you're drinking water."

Neely, 47, of Willow Grove, made it sound like mind games are most effective.

You gotta think cold," he said.
