Wickford Appliance Ice Challenge

NORTH KINGSTOWN – In the midst of last weekend’s heatwave, a local business placed a chest-freezer sized block of ice outside, under the blistering hot sun. The business, Wickford Appliance, asked the community to answer the question: how long would it take for the ice to melt? 

Upping the ante, Wickford Appliance said it would be giving away $1,000 shopping sprees to the three winners who came closest to the time of melting.
