When a factory issue Slip ‘n’ Slide just won’t do the trick on those blazing hot days when you need to cool off, you have to use your brain and get creative. Like this group of friends who had the wherewithall to turn a storm drain into a quarter-mile, homemade water slide.

Even a pup gets in on the fun!
