Bills face snow chaos ahead of playoff game in hours

Highmark Stadium in Buffalo, New York, was covered in snow just hours before the Bills-Steelers wild-card game on Monday. The Bills organization reached out to the public, asking for more shovelers to help prepare the stadium for the game. The team's official Twitter account posted a message stating that they still needed shovelers to assist in getting the stadium ready. They included a photo of the snowy stadium and another image of bulldozers removing snow from the field.

Fans were seen shoveling tons of snow in the upper bowl of the stadium, where the seats were completely covered. The Bills had shovelers working overnight after the travel ban was lifted. They announced that individuals were authorized to travel to the stadium to assist in snow removal to ensure the safety of the venue before it opened to the public.

Shovelers were required to be 18 years old or older (or under 18 with proper working papers). In return for their help, they received complimentary beverages and breakfast, as well as access to a warm break area.

The Bills initially asked for shovelers on Friday when the game was still scheduled for Sunday. However, due to the snowstorm and subsequent travel ban, the game was postponed to Monday. The Buffalo area was expected to receive an additional 3-6 inches of snow on Monday, along with white-out conditions and gusty winds.

In summary, the Bills organization called for shovelers to assist in clearing the snow from Highmark Stadium before the Bills-Steelers game. Despite the challenging weather conditions, fans and workers came together to ensure the stadium was safe for the game.
