Snow Daze

For those of you sick of constant coverage of “Deflategate“, you are in luck. A major blizzard is heading our way, reportedly dropping from 2 to 3 feet of snow, and taking over coverage in the media. So, instead of “Deflategate“, be prepared for “Blizzard 2015“.
Here is what you need to know:
