The Midwest, and East Coast of the U.S. has been buried in winter weather the last few weeks. Too bad we can’t shove some of that snow up to Vancouver. People reports that the area has had “spring-like conditions.” So much so that they’ve had to hire out someone to get more snow for some of the snowboarding and skiing competitions. They are also “using a dry ice tubing system to keep the courses frozen.”
Isn’t that always the way? Just when you think you’ve chosen the right place for the Olympics, Mother Nature decides to have a little fun. Mother Nature apparently doesn’t realize that winter can be had artificially now. At a cost, of course. I suppose that goes to show that you still can’t beat Mother Nature.
