Hi Mark,
The igloos usually melt about July 1st in the southern parts of the Arctic, 
but those built up near the pointy part of the world near the North pole 
usually stay year after year. :-) We still have great snow ball fights in 
July because the sun shines 24 -7 for about 3 months. The only problem is 
some guys make snowballs with hard ice formed centre's and they hurt like 
hell when you get hit in the head with a couple of those.

But the environmental changes are beginning to take their toll as the ice 
flows melt and break away from the Mother Icebergs. So some groups of people 
in their igloos float away southward towards southern areas of North 
America! So it's quite possible if you look out some late July morning to 
the New York Harbour and see a bunch of illegal immigrants in igloos 
floating past the Statue of Liberty!

Be kind to them. :-) It's not their fault Planet Earth is warming up as they 
eat much of their seal meat and other critters raw! Much like Sushi! :-)

Please call your local Canadian Embassy and they will be returned to where 
they came from at no cost to the USA. Do not shoot at them because they can 
throw a spear faster and more accurate than a speeding bullet!!:) They 
learned that trick from Superman when he first arrived. So yer guys wont 
have a chance! Just be nice, smile and offer fresh Seal meat and you'll not 
have any problems! :-)

Have nice day and keep a sharp eye for the float by igloos. ;-)
Dr. ted :-)
