Super Bowl XLV: Winter Weather Causing Travel Problems For Fans

The NFL goes out of their way to make sure that the Super Bowl isn’t played in nasty winter weather to even be considered to host the big game a city has to have decent weather or a domed stadium. Dallas usually has both and just to make sure weather doesn’t play a part in the outcome of the game the retractable roof at Cowboys Stadium will be closed on Sunday. Despite all of their power, however, the NFL can’t handle the weather nationwide and the big winter storm in the Midwest has wreaked havoc on the travel plans of Packers and Steelers fans.

But it’s not just the bad weather conditions in the Midwest Texas was hit by a sizable ice storm previous this week. According to flight tracking service FlightAware at least 1,250 flights to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport have been canceled this week. That’s second only to Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, where ‘The Windy City’ has been impacted by one of the most severe blizzards in current memory. The storm in Texas was followed by unseasonably cold weather with high temperatures in the mid-teens.
