Didn't see the game, so a few questions:

Was there (too much) snow before kick off?
Did the US score while there was just little snow?
Did the pitch start to get full of snow after that?
How much time did it take for the pitch to get "unplayable"?

Basically if the pitch was full of snow before the game and the ref decided to kick off, they can't do anything about it. If the US scored under legal conditions and the Costa Ricans had no fair chance to equalize it might help, but the governing body is pretty passive regarding those things.
