"Ideally if everybody built themselves a snowman that will slow the thaw down a bit."

Well, it is true.

The big piles of snow in parking lots here can last until June sometimes!

Laugh all you want, yanks. Britain now, with its insane bureaucracy, constant surveillance of its own people, legislated morality, and gossip rags that are passed off as newspapers, is what America will be in 20 years or less.

Not that we aren't already most of the way there already.

Let's build a snowman,
we'll make him out of snow,
we can make him tall,
or we can make him not so tall
SNOWMAN!

done in one.

Compacted piles of snow do melt faster.  Of course one or two snowmen won't do it.  And it doesn't have to be a snowman.  it can just be a ball.  or a brick of snow.  or a snowbank.

Having lived in the snowbound northeast for much of my life, dealing with winters where snow covers the ground December through April, never once did melting snow flood my home.  Not even Vermont - which has four seasons: summer, fall, winter and mud - has to worry about snowmelt flooding homes.

Just submitted an article to Fark about this event over here in Pennsylvania:

Nuclear Power Plant makes it's own snow
Here's some of my headlines: (the ones I tossed)

Neighborhood kid's price for clearing your sidewalk just went past $50...

Real life mutant snowman, dubbed "Frosty" has been seen wandering around Pennsylvania woods.

While most of the US is in grip of a huge cold wave, Pennsylvanians are actually doing something about it. Well, granted, it isn't what I would do, but then I am not a nuclear scientist.
