Does your Cold Water Tap go Hot in Summer?

Mine does. Whenever we have a heatwave, I cant get cold water. The cold water comes out almost boiling. It's certainly too hot to touch. I have to run it for at least 5 minutes to get some cold water out of it. Seems like a waste of water, but there's nothing I can do about it. The ground where the water pipes are laid heats up too much. Does this happen to your cold water in summer?
