Dallas' Record Snowfall Creates Interesting NBA All-Star 2010 Weekend

Dallas records 9.8 inches of snow, most snow in one day ever
Big Snow Day in Dallas for 2010 NBA All-Star Weekend

DALLAS,Texas - Just in time for 2010 NBA All-Star Weekend, Dallas got its largest snow day ever as 9.8 inches of snow was recorded to have fallen on Dallas/Fort Worh International Airport as of 10:00pm Dallas time and it's still coming down. That is the most snow in Dallas ever, at least since it started collecting weather data 111 years ago. The previous record was 7.8 inches in one day set in 1917 and again in 1964. This all coming just as 2010 NBA All-Star Weekend events began today. The weather has caused havoc on Dallas roads as well as shut down Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, just as tens of thousands of fans and players were scheduled to come in.

Hundreds of flights were cancelled or delayed and 120 flights have been already been cancelled for Saturday morning. However, the show must go on and the NBA has said all All-Star Weekend events will continue as scheduled despite the weather. "All of the events and activities are on schedule and have not been impacted by the weather," NBA senior vice president Tim Frank told ESPN Thursday afternoon. "As far as players, hopefully now. But we'll be monitoring it."

With that said, the weather might still affect All-Star events like the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. New York Knicks' guard Nate Robinson tweeted "This snow is 4 the birds! I might not make it out for the dunk contest that would be so weak." Los Angeles Lakers' guard Kobe Bryant, who is suffering from a sore left ankle, has already pulled out of the All-Star game and might not even make it out to Dallas where he had been scheduled to appear at various All-Star events including assisting fellow Lakers teammate Shannon Brown with his Slam Dunk Contest bid. The weather is forecasted to clear up for Saturday's Jam Session and Sunday's All-Star Game with temperatures expected to rise above 40 degrees for both days.

 

This winter has seen freak weather that has seen the most one of the coldest winters in Dallas and blizzards in the mid-Atlantic while more northern locations such as Vancouver are seeing unseasonably warm weather. So warm, in fact, that the Vancouver Winter Olympics, which is set to open Friday, has been flying in snow from hundreds of miles away to get enough snow for its various sporting events like snowboarding.

It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them - not something they'd want now. oanda Ratting
