Two blocks of ice placed in front of Sweeney's in Soldotna slowly melt as the sun shines down Monday. Above average temperatures for Jan. 20 reached up to 45 degrees in Soldotna. Store owner Mike Sweeney said ice sculptor Scott Hanson would not be able to work on the sculpture until the temperatures dropped near freezing. Sweeney said the sculptures will be a leprechaun and penguin. The National Weather Service calls for partly cloudy skies with a chance of rain for Tuesday in Soldotna with temperatures highs in the mid 30's.
