Harbin a harbinger of China's tropical future?

When you have an ice festival, it's pretty well expected you will have a lot of...well, ice.

When you have an ice festival, it's pretty well expected you will have a lot of...well, ice. And for years in far northeastern China thew great city of Harbin has hosted an annual ice festival. This year their plans have melted away like the ice sculptures themselves. Too much sunlight and warmth. In January. In Harbin, which is at the same lattitude as Minneapolis.

So here's the sad story from Mnachuria. Not cold enough. So they have to keep re-doing their ice sculptures, and hope for cold to last until February. Used to be take for granted. Maybe they should go in for a citryus festival instead?
