Anita Brikman and the block of Ice

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- We, here at WUSA9, are an inquisitive bunch. So, when we had our meeting about how to report on exactly how hot it is outside during this heatwave, we asked: "How long will it take for 300 lbs. of ice to melt in the hot DC streets. 

Throughout the day we live tweeted from Dupont Circle as the ice progressively melted.


The first man to walk up to the ice said it would take three whole hours to melt -- but he wasn't close.

After a whole 10 and a half hours, the ice was nearly gone.
