This morning DFW Airport has been closed for what was said to be the first time ever.   Love Field had issues, and even Dart rail in Dallas stopped running and they were converting to buses. And nearly every one of the 38 school districts in the Dallas Fort Worth area was closed, too.

Meanwhile in Arlington, Media Day goes on for the Super Bowl.
