One Rockland businesses has to adjust how it operates when temperatures get as high as today's.
Down to Earth Living in Pomona closes its nursery to the public earlier on extremely hot days to get their workers out of the conditions. 
"We're very concerned that our employees, No. 1, enjoy their work, they can see the fruitful product of their labor and they can care for their health," says owner Stuart Leventhal.
Workers also need to water plants twice a day and take more frequent water breaks too. 
Down to Earth Living has been in operation for 51 years.
