First Avenue Glacier Melting

East Villagers don't know much about melting glaciers. Why would they? — until recently there were no glaciers here to be concerned with!

To bring you up to speed, here is a picture of rivers of water flowing on top of a glacier in Greenland (where the Beatles made their left turn on their first trip to America!):

Now, the same thing is happening here! This is a picture of the First Avenue Glacier, taken two days ago:

Meanwhile,  the glacier has begun to spread to the north side of East 2nd Street!

No one knows why this is happening. I think it's time to bring out the big guns, so to speak, and drive this glacier back to whence it came!
