Well, as it turned out, Washington, D.C. didn't get a record snow fall, they got 60 cm which was enough to paralyse them mind you. Philadelphia won out this time, they got about 72 cm.

I gather the Superbowl ads weren't as good as they used to be. According to the GMA correspondent the best one was the Snickers ad which featured Betty White. They showed it and I didn't think much of it. The game itself was a surprise apparently with the New Orleans Saints winning - they were not the favourites, but the people of New Orleans celebrated all night we are told. I once went to a Superbowl party and our host explained what was going on in the game to me so in fact I quite enjoyed watching it. However, whatever he explained has more or less gone out of the window and I have no idea what is going on any more.
