The early summer heatwave has folks in the Triangle feeling like we’re melting, and WRAL-TV decided to throw an icy spin on the sweltering temperatures. WRAL commissioned local artist Todd Dawson to create an 1,800 pound ice sculpture placed out front of the station by the fountain beginning at 6am on Thursday, June 25, 2015.
How long will it take to melt? WRAL has a livestream video running to time the big melt. We welcome viewers to guess how long it’ll take using #itsmeltingWRAL on social media. Also, share your pictures and comments with the hashtag #itsmeltingWRAL.
Thanks to WRAL-TV for this capcom photo.
