Baby, it’s been cold outside! Even though no one predicted the unusual movement of Canada’s Polar Vortex that’s put so much of the nation into a deep freeze, this blast of brutally cold air was just the icing on the proverbial cold-weather cake we Americans were expecting this winter.
For East Rutherford, New Jersey – home to Super Bowl 48, of course- January was already expected to be colder than normal, with above average snowfall. February weather in the New York/New Jersey area can range from heavy snow and freezing temperatures to sunshine and mild temperatures in the 40s, but according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the weather on February 1 thru 3 is predicted to be stormy, with heavy rain and snow! All the more reason why Super Bowl 48 will be the “coolest game in history” –in more ways than one.
Be Cool and Look Smart. The Super Bowl Host Committee wants all the fans to prepare for this first-ever, cold weather Super Bowl played in an open-air stadium by planning to dress smart. The key fashion advice: layers. Wear a heavy coat over several layers of clothing, to shield the body from potential biting winds and low temperatures. Frostbite affects toes, fingers, ears and nose first, so wear gloves, scarves and ear protection –or at least bring them with you to the game. Wear a warm hat or wool cap to prevent heat loss from your head.
In this video, Super Bowl champion and future Hall of Famer Michael Strahan gives tips to help you dress like a local for the coolest game in history (by the way, Michael gave a Super Bowl pre-game chat and an inside look at the big game at last year’s Player’s Ultimate Tailgate Party).
Remember -people cope better in cold weather if they are well fueled, so be sure to stay hydrated and take in food. Alcohol reduces your body temperature, so please consume responsibly.
