Football that is.
A few weeks ago, I met with a local legend that predicts the weather every year. He said we would have a mild winter. While we’re not quite to winter, the weather has been great as of recent.
In fact, all of this year’s football games have been in great weather. Not as much as a drop of rain.
Yesterday before I went to shoot the sectional championship football game between the Hagerstown Tigers and the Knightstown Panthers, I checked the weather. I knew it would be cold. Game time temperatures were supposed to be in the mid 30s. There was also a 20-30% chance of snow flurries, depending on which weather source I believed.
I’m no meteorologist but I think this snowfall is a little bit too heavy to be called flurries.
The snow caused an unreal amount of fumbles and incomplete passes. It was hard to see across the field and follow the action at times. Players were sliding all over the place and constantly scrambling for loose balls.
I wasn’t expecting this intense of a snowfall for the first snow of the season. Luckily I like snow and it made for an exciting game.
