Moscow Mayor Promises a Winter Without Snow
 

page delimiter


16 Oct 09 - "Pigs still can't fly, but this winter, the mayor of Moscow promises to keep it from snowing," said this article in Time just four months ago.

"For just a few million dollars, the mayor's office will hire the Russian air force to spray a fine chemical mist over the clouds before they reach the capital, forcing them to dump their snow outside the city. Authorities say this will be a boon for Moscow, which is typically covered with a blanket of snow from November to March. Road crews won't need to constantly clear the streets, and the traffic — and quality of life — will undoubtedly improve...."

"The plan was unsurprisingly rubber-stamped this week by the Moscow City Council.... The city's Department of Housing and Public Works described how it would work: the air force would use cement powder, dry ice or silver iodide to spray the clouds from Nov. 15 to March 15 — and only to prevent "very big and serious snow" from falling on the city."

          How's that working for you, Mayor Luzhkov?
