The east coast "blizzard" in Philadelphia

Another week, another messed us Minnesota Vikings game. But this one isn't the fault of Minnesota weather. This time we can blame Philadelphia and their relative lack of winter fortitude. This scene, captured last evening in the Fishtown area of Philadelphia, shows what many of us native Minnesotans would consider to be an average snowstorm. I'm sure it's worse in outlying areas with fewer buildings but if this is all it takes to postpone an NFL game, how do they ever play outdoors in places like Green Bay, Buffalo, New England or Chicago? Come on Philly, man up!
