Sand doesn't melt

But sometimes it seems like it does. Mary Ellen took in the sand-sculpture competition at Revere Beach yesterday - early, she says, before she could melt.
Michael Spicher went as well:

Sand does melt
Along with silica it becomes a glass
Yes, you got me
I should've written "Sand doesn't melt below 3,090 degrees F," but I went with pithy instead
Why on earth wouldn't you express it as 1972.039 Kelvin?
Because that's too many significant figures!
Some of us deal in precision. I'm not about to take any chances of heating my sand up to 1972.038 Kelvin and sitting there wondering why it isn't turning into glass.
