The weather people are out here saying a HEATWAVE is headed our way in Texas. That is a shame. From what I've gathered from KVUE-ABC news, Central Texas will get the worst of the heat, with expected temperatures to reach up to 113 degrees. Yikes. East Texas will get the tail end of the extreme with temps in the high 90's, but that's nothing new 'round here.

The best thing to do during a heatwave inside of the coronavirus pandemic outbreak of 2020 is to keep cool by eating some ICE CREAM!

I have curated for you a list of some great places all over East Texas where you can zip off to grab a scoop of the good stuff. Some places even deliver! Of course, you have your fast food locations that have things like Frosty's (Wendy's), Blizzards (Dairy Queen), Sundaes (McDonald's), frozen ice cream balls (Dippin' Dots), and shakes (Sonic Drive-In), but it's always a great thing to support our local "Mom & Pop" shops, too!
