    I can be elsewhere while they’re on. Good luck to the participants but I don’t want to watch, thanks.

    I have not tuned in yet.
    But I assumed it was because I am just grumpy in general lately.
    Is it the lack of positive coverage or does nobody really care about the Russian Olympics?

    But, but. where’s the terror factor?
    Now if they were to use a luge skateboard down the Haleakala Highway! Or even the Angeles Crest Highway…
    Or the Kingsbury Grade Road … oh yeah!

    The Sochi organizers wanted to make damn sure there’d be enough powder on the slopes for this year’s Olympic Games. (No one wants a repeat of Vancouver in 2010.) They pulled out all the stops: stockpiled snow from previous winters, built a new-and-improved weather prediction computer model, purchased the latest snow gun technology from overseas, and even flew in a snowmaking expert from Finland. As the Games begin, the organizers are sitting on the equivalent of more than 1,000 football fields covered in a foot of snow.
    .
    Part one of Russia’s snow contingency plan started years ago: collecting as much snow as possible every winter to stock up for the 2014 Games. Officials compiled some 710,000 cubic yards of snow, which was stored high up in the mountains insulated under reflective blankets to keep it from melting in the summer. These massive snowpiles are an insurance policy. If there isn’t enough natural or manmade powder for the events, the piles will be released down the side of the mountain to replenish the slopes.
