England was bombarded by snow today, and in a couple of Premier League matches, the weather appeared to cause a bit of chaos.The snow wasn’t nearly as bad as that seen in Italy earlier this week. But at one point in the second half of the Manchester City-Fulham match, the game had to be delayed for snow removal.

On the close-ups, you could really see how much snow was coming down

And it was thick

Near the end of the first half, you could see that it was starting to accumulate

And in the second half, the game had to be delayed for snow removal

One American snow tradition has apparently found its way across the pond

And yet another snow removal delay

You could really see the impact of the snow near the boundaries

Like American football players, some in this game refused to wear long sleeves

Manchester City still managed to score three goals

Things got a bit testy at one point

The always entertaining Mario Balotelli had to watch the craziness from a box

Even this baby refused to be defeated by the snow

And here is how the field looked after the game
