Given the sheer amount of snow that has fallen across the country this year, it’s hard to call what is going on in Chicago right now a ‘blizzard’ but it’s not making things any easier for the ice crew tonight who are tasked with clearing the ice throughout the game.

Snow is being dumped on Solider Field in Chicago tonight and while it’s not a whiteout, the Zamboni and the ice crew are going to have to work extra hard to make sure the quality of the ice isn’t compromised by the snow storm.

Conditions have since gotten worse as Mother Nature doesn’t care if the Bears are paying Solider Field or if the Blackhawks are as the weather in the stadium is unkind to whoever plays there and hockey is no exception to the fury.
