Super Bowl 48: MetLife Stadium covered in snow hours after game (Photo)

For weeks, all we heard about was potential rain, snow and cold temperatures for Super Bowl 48.

But come kickoff, the temperatures were mild and precipitation was non-existant.

How quickly things can change though. Not even twelve hours after Super Bowl XLVIII had come to an end, MetLife Stadium was blanketed in snow:

Talk about dodging a bullet. Of course, we as fans likely would have preferred to see a battle in the slush – especially in comparison to what we were given (thanks, Broncos) but Mother Nature just wasn’t willing to cooperate.

Pretty much a stroke of luck that the NFL was able to sandwich itself between storms – and not only that – but temperatures didn’t even dip into the 30′s. Have a feeling that may give the NFL false hope of another ‘cold weather’ Super Bowl going off just as smoothly, though, I personally wouldn’t mind seeing a nasty weather Super Bowl in the coming years.

We’re going to have to wait for that though as 2015 will be played in Phoenix while 2016 will take place in San Francisco.
