Ah, the Fall Classic. Overcoats and mittens and brisk walks through parks filled with trees showing off their fall colors.

Not so much if you’re building an NFL stadium.
Columbus, Ohio CBS station WBNS went black for six minutes as its weather staff delivered ominous news of a tornado warning in Franklin and Madison counties.

Weather, as weather is wont to do, fucked shit up earlier tonight at the Colorado Rockies’ park before the team’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The field looked completely unusable, until the grounds crew worked their magic.
