Noise at the 2010 Olympics!

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

It’s not as big a deal as one might think – all of those generators surrounding B.C. Place, waiting to be used during the opening ceremonies at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics on February 12th.

The problem is that none of them are running yet. We take that back. One is now running – and it’s loud. So loud that neighbors living in nearby condos are complaining.

We give credit to the Olympic committee, though. They’re taking swift action to equip the generators with soundproofing materials. Now all neighbors will have to worry about are the events themselves!
