Mid-Southerners watching the New England Patriots vs. Detroit Lions game on CBS Thanksgiving Day did not see the United Way Halftime Show due to approaching storms. The severity of the weather conditions prompted WREG News Channel 3 meteorologists to use the time reserved for the halftime show to provide live weather center coverage warning viewers of potential danger.
The safety of people in our region always takes the highest priority. We’re glad our local CBS affiliate warned people in harm’s way about the dangerous weather conditions so they could take proper action.
Some photos from the halftime show in Detroit can be found here, at the Detroit Free Press website.
