ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Just two days before the Super Bowl, a fresh blast of snow and ice canceled hundreds of flights into Dallas-Fort Worth, transformed highways into skating rinks and caused dangerous sheets of ice to fall from Cowboys Stadium, sending at least six people to the hospital.

The six people hurt were private contractors who had been hired by the NFL to prepare the stadium for the game. One man was hit in the head, another in the shoulder. None of the injuries was considered life-threatening.
