With cooler temperatures in the morning in Pasadena, runners, walkers and golfers were out at the Rose Bowl to get some exercise in before triple-digit temperatures hit.

But while Thursday saw scorching temperatures, many residents say they don't mind it, especially since the summer has, so far, been mild.

"Oh we've been spoiled this summer. It's been very tolerable," said Margaret Fortmeier of Pasadena.

Areas like Northridge and Encino saw temperatures reaching into the 100s, but a cool down was expected this weekend.
