Slush Festival

Blame it on climate change or just bad luck, but temperatures well above freezing and a steady drizzle reduced thousands of visitors to slushing through coffee-colored mud. They watched helplessly as the lovingly hand-crafted crystalline artworks shrank before their eyes. "I was really worried. Parts of the sculptures were falling off."

-Warm temperatures spoil Japanese snow-carving festival.
