The snow began around 1 p.m. local time Wednesday and was falling steadily in the middle of the afternoon as the Canadian moguls team arrived for practice. Olympic officials expected between 2 and 4 inches of snow and said that should give them some cushion.
In other words, phew. The unseasonably warm winter has forced Vancouver Olympics officials to bring in snow to create an appropriate ski course.
Unfortunately, snow is not supposed to hit again. According to the Weather Channel, rain is supposed to fall on Vancouver starting Friday and last until Tuesday.
