dinoyum writes: Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov's promise of a winter without snow in the capitol city has fallen short.

Carrying off the $6 million procedure required Jets to spray silver iodide into coming clouds, ensuring that all precipitation fall before it reached the capital.

For now, Russia can go back to enjoying snow.
