Wuh-Woh! Not Enough Snow For The Winter Olympics?
Everyone’s getting pretty excited for the Winter Olympics, which start in Vancouver on February 12th. Only one thing is missing. And unfortunately, it’s a big one—snow. None is in the forecast and it’s too warm there to let snow machines do their usual work. The Vancouver Olympic Committee is busy figuring out a plan B—they’ll be bringing in stockpiles of snow from higher elevations and maybe even shipping some in. They also plan to lay star under the existing snow to give it a base. Darn you, global warming. [NY Times]
