Temperatures in Texas hit the 80s earlier this week, but Jack Frost was up to no good by Thursday and Friday, slamming the Dallas Metroplex with a wintry blast of ice and snow. Bad weather has forced the cancellation of the Dallas Marathon, which was expected to draw 25,000 runners. It's also coated Rangers Ballpark in suburban Arlington with a coat of ice and snow. It's still more than four months until opening day, so the grounds crew probably will just let this stuff melt without worrying too much.
Luckily for us, a photographer from the Arlington Police Department came by to take this shot. Another for MLB.com also happened by and took more amazing photos of the scene.
