Walking in a Winter Wonderland

We're as confused as this dog is: Snow? In Union Square? Today? (Hell, at all this winter?) It can't be! Actually, it can. Apparently, the world's top snowboarders are converging on Union Square at three o'clock this afternoon for a Jeep-sponsored competition. They'll "participate in a rail jam format on a customized urban rail," whatever that means, and the winner gets $30,000. But first, the snow. We've got none this year, or at least none to speak of, so it's all been trucked in. Ten tons of the white stuff, says NY1. Which, once Fido has his way with it, will be yellow stuff.
