Sarah Reid, 11, of Edgeworth hands a customer a cup of lemonade as her brother Mason, 7, looks on Wednesday, July 17, 2013. The siblings said they were taking advantage of the heat and humidity by selling the cold lemonade to passersby at the corner of Beaver Road and Edgeworth Lane in Edgeworth to save money for electronic devices. Sarah said her father, a personal trainer, suggested including the low calorie count on the sign.

Paul Bronaugh, 6, of Coraopolis jumps into a fountain at the Leetsdale splash pad Friday, July 19, 2013. With temperatures in the low 90s and high humidity, Friday capped off a 5-day heat wave in the area.

Temperatures soared last week and the humidity raged on, but folks in the Sewickley Valley found ways to stay cool at the splash pad in Leetsdale and with lemonade.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
