I'm probably going to miss something and this will be so basic many old hands will wonder why I'm even making this thread. New fans not as accustomed to snow and cold might want a primer. One, get a map.. With the possible exception of Buffalo, Minnesota, Seattle, and Chicago - Foxboro is about as far north as an NFL team can go. New York is fricken' balmy by comparison. Not that it can't get cold there, but if it is 28 degrees in NY it is probably 21 degrees here. The biggest difference with NY is usually in January and February - you never see the Jets hosting then. If you see snow before, say, halloween, it is a flurry, That is to say it is no big deal. It'll probably melt soon and only needs a broom to clear the walk. After, about Thanksgiving, snow fall is a real possibility. And the cold is different than in Denver. While we don't have thin air, we have humidity. In other cold places it is dry. If you sweat then sit on a bench, it evaporates. Here you end up sitting in wet clothes. Oh, those heaters are nice, but sorta useless. Too close and it is too hot. Too far away and it might as well not exist. And if you have your back in the millimeter of good temperature zone (carefully not sweating), your front is freezing. Oh, we haven't technically had a blizzard since 1898 or something. You know a snow storm is a blizzard if they cancel the game and news reports start with a body count. The bad storms, may you never see one ('cuz I have to live in that crap ) are called Nor'easters. Here is a link to highlights of a famous weather game.
