Snowmen Save the Day

In the small town of Pineville, it snowed non-stop for five days. Snow covered the roads, the houses, and the trees.

On the sixth day, everything changed. The weatherman said, "Hot air is on the way. All of the snow is going to melt very quickly and there will be floods. Get ready!"

The families who lived on Pine Lane got together and came up with a plan. They would build snowmen! The snow would melt much more slowly if it was put in piles or really big round balls.

Everyone joined in. Soon every house on Pine Lane had at least one snowman.

The warm air came the next day. All streets in Pineville were flooded. But not Pine Lane. The houses on Pine Lane stayed dry as their snowmen slowly got smaller and smaller. They took almost 5 days to completely melt.
