Super Bowl 2012 organizers mindful of weather

Organizers of the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis aren’t wasting

any time figuring out what kinds of weather they might have to deal

with.

Members of the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee said

Friday they have identified eight kinds of weather conditions that

may show up in February — rain, sleet, ice, snow, hail, wind, fog

and even tornadoes. Officials say charting weather patterns helps

the committee as they plan for the big event.

Last month’s Super Bowl in the Dallas area included bitter cold,

ice and snow. Falling ice at Cowboys Stadium even injured several

people.

The committee declined comment on the NFL labor

negotiations.
