2011 Super Bowl: Snow In Dallas Makes Traveling Difficult

Greetings from the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas, Texas. When I say I'm happy to be in Dallas, you should believe me. That's because getting from Kansas City (where I came from) to Dallas isn't the easiest thing in the world.

I was scheduled to leave Kansas City around 5:00 p.m. on Monday evening before an incoming snowstorm delayed travelers. The Kansas City airport started to cancel flights as I sat there wondering if I would be able to make it to Dallas.

Eventually, the plane was de-iced, the runway was cleared and we took off around 8:00 p.m. But now that I'm in Dallas, we're done with the snow, right?

Wrong.

The snow has followed me to Dallas. As of this moment, there's snow on the ground outside. It's not much -- less than an inch -- but it's not the sight you want to see after leaving a snowstorm. 

We'll see how Dallas handles the snow as thousands and thousands of visitors begin to descend up on the city.
