    Default Moscow to ban snow from falling within the city

    Ok, a bit misleading title but they are spending millions to prevent snow from falling in the city so they don't have to spend just as much to remove the snow off city streets.

    Similar to preventing big hail storms.

    did you read it?

    they do it twice a year to make sure it doesn't rain on their parades (no pun intended). if it works for rain i don't see why it wouldn't for snow...

    They claim it'll only cost $6 million, half of what they spend on snow removal.

    yes however we seed our clouds to promote snow and rain, not prevent it. Obviously the mayor of Moscow did not complete 5th grade science.

    Moscow is seeding the clouds to force them to dump sooner, outside of the city center.
