So just how cold was it?

Top news coming in to San Francisco is about the weather being so cold, tailgaters could not enjoy tailgating before the 49ers-Packers wild-card game.

Says Newser.com

"It was 6 degrees about two hours before the game, with a wind chill of minus-11. Temperatures were expected to drop through the day."

Lambeau Field at 80,000-plus capacity was sold out which was good news, but the "meat-locker conditions" meant tailgating could not happen. That was bad news.

Fans had to look for other ways to celebrate pre-game.

And they were able to do so. Everyone then enjoyed a great game once it got started.

As Newser.com says:

"One group of bundled-up fans tailgated in front of an outdoor fire pit in a driveway. Another couple set up a hunting blind behind their pickup truck and cozied up beside a propane heater."

Catching the ball was described like "catching a brick," said some of the players. That's how cold it was.
