For the last several days we've been under a heat advisory in parts of Missouri as temperatures have risen to triple digits. This Springfield family was determined to beat the heat and made their own whirlpool — stock tank + water + shovel = awesome!

Sharon Taylor decided to keep everyone cool the old fashioned way. This stock tank, especially when stirred with a snow shovel creates a great afternoon of fun. There was swimming, water balloons, and all sorts of swirly twirly action happening.

Sharon was kind enough to share this photo on Twitter (@ST_Designs) last night and it instantly transported me back to my own childhood memories — though in my day we may or may not have also done backflips off the deck into it. Amazingly enough I am still alive today!

Thanks Sharon!
