I don't care how tough you think you are, this...

Quote:
Beginning late Thursday night, colder air will surge into the Upper Midwest from Canada as an arctic front races south. This front is expected to trek all the way to the Gulf Coast by early Saturday, bringing well below normal temperatures to much of the eastern two-thirds of the country. The cold air looks to be accompanied by gusty northerly winds on Friday in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and wind chills to the -25°F to -40°F range appear likely given the meteorological setup
...is not fun. Ask people who live in that shit. I know a few and they agree.

edit: usually you don't see that kind of weather up there until late Dec/Jan, so if you're playing the odds, you're probably not going to see that kind of weather - fortunately.

Ive been a lurker here for a while time to post.

Wind Chills like that are not fun at all.

However, Lambeau is an awesome place to watch games. I took a group up this year during the Texans bye week in November and it the temp was about 47.

Usually Snow comes around Thanksgiving and December games you can be looking at single digit highs. Two years ago the Pack played detroit on a Sunday night game and at kick off the temp was about 7 and quickly slid. By the time you got hot chocolate back to your seat it was starting to freeze.

If you are going to this game get your hotel reservations in within the first few weeks of the schedule being released or you will end up staying in Appleton or Osh Kosh. Which driving after a game can be treacherous if there is snow or ice combined with everyone else that have been enjoying adult beverages.

One other thing is tickets will probably cost a bit more after the playoff run this year. If Favre is back the expectations will be Super Bowl or Bust!

There is a preferred vendor / partner of the Packers. That have complete packages including tailgate party with unlimited beer, bloody marys, screwdrivers, brats, etc. I am unsure if its ok to post the name or link here. Mods is that OK?

Also when you are there try the Spotted Cow.

Well, that's not entirely true. '06 and '07 are the only seasons the Texans have had 3 home games after November 30. And total, 14 home and 15 road games in December/January.

Please post the name of the link. It is relevant to the thread.

The Texans will have packages too, and you will be more likely hooked up with other Texans fans.

Though I will say, I think I'd rather make some Packer fan friends, and find some non-corporate tailgates to crash.

Thanks for the actual info, and not the top of the head thought.

What road games have the Texans had in December/January in cold weather?

I can only recall the December game in Chicago in 2004.

Here is the link Packer Fan Tours and Events USA Green Bay I believe are the same company and are "recommended" by the Packers


http://http://packerfantours.com/tours_tickets/

Here is one specific to the Tailgate Party at Brett Favre's Steak House http://packerfantours.com/tailgate/

There is another company that does similar packages called Titletown Tickets

Only 2 games on the road in December has the temp. been below 40.
Chicago, of course, in '04, temperature 12 degrees with a wind chill of -8, and Pittsburgh in '02, 35 degrees.

In '04 it was 40 in Jacksonville with a wind chill of 30.

And the Texans WON all 3.
So bring on the frozen tundra!!!
