Oh yes, games are usually postponed for anything more than a tiny film of snow.

Also, don't blame them for complaining afterwards. Postponing the game happens at the discretion of the referee, not the teams. The institutions pretty much always cover the shenanigans of referees though so the result will stand regardless, but the game obviously shouldn't have been.
