Super Bowl XLV: The Ice Bowl II as bad weather hits Dallas
"Ice, sleet, snow and really slick [roads]. People are not used to it," Bill Lively, President and CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee, told WFAA-TV.
While the timing isn't ideal and the temperature (with wind-chill factored in) was around 1 degree, it could have been much worse. Although Dallas-Fort Worth airport was closed for a time Tuesday, the teams arrived Monday, most media members Sunday or early Monday and fans don't typically arrive until Thursday. That won't stop the whining, though, or stop the debate over the cold-weather Super Bowl that's coming to New Jersey in a few years.
