That same snowfall broke more than just records, it broke the roof of the Metrodome in Minneapolis, forcing it to collapse, see video. The Minnesota Vikings were forced to play their first outdoor NFL home game in Minneapolis in 28 years.
The Vikings realize that playing in the elements does provide a strategic advantage for one team. Please join WeatherBug Meteorologist Bay Scroggins in this month's video lesson as he visits the Minnesota Vikings and asks Adrian Peterson, Greg Camarillo and other NFL players just how weather affects the game of football. The video can be viewed in Windows Media Player or in QuickTime.
