Here's What The Buffalo Bills Stadium Looks Like During Snowstorm

It's safe to say that the weather reports were right on the money when it came to just how much snow was expected at the Buffalo Bills' football stadium this week.

Highmark Stadium in upstate New York and the wider Buffalo metro area have been hammered by snowfall over the past 12 hours, with few signs of abating before the accumulation reaches eye level.

The end result at Highmark Stadium is literally chilling as the team released some photos from inside their venue a few minutes ago. Their field is completely covered by snow, with the endzone uprights serving as about the only thing that marks it as a football stadium right now.

The photos are going viral with over 5,500 likes and 1,000 retweets in just 20 minutes. Buffalo have already moved Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns to Detroit's Ford Field.

For some weird reason, everyone in the replies is admonishing the Bills (hopefully jokingly) for not playing the game in these insane conditions. 

There's already well over two feet of snow with the potential to rise above three, four or even five feet in the coming hours. Even if the team spent the entire day scooping the snow out of everywhere the conditions would be way too hazardous to pack tens of thousands of people into Highmark Stadium. 

And that's not to even mention the parking lots, the local roads and all of the other logistics that go into an NFL game. 

It's a beautiful sight though, and one that's worth looking at with wonder rather than trying to bruteforce a pair of NFL teams through.
