It's snowing in Salt Lake City. Not hard, but hard enough to dust the city in a blanket of white and cover the Rio Tinto field (see above). This wouldn't be that significant if it weren't the first time in the 26-year and 442-game history of the U.S. Women's National Team that's it's snowed on a game day. Forecast for game time is temperatures around 40-degrees and if it ain't snowing, there's likely to be some very cold rain, which will make for a different kind of game than was played in San Diego last Sunday when thermometer almost reached 80 degrees during the match. Many of the U.S. players come from cold weather climates and have played in snow before, including Heather Mitts (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Meghan Schnur (Butler, Pa.) below, but for the Mexican team it surely will be a new experience. Fortunately, the U.S. team will be using the new Nike Red ball. That should help a bit...
A snow day for Heather and Meghan
Yeah, there's a bit of snow falling in SLC
