Rain Delay ... No, Let's Make that a Postponement

We drove to Minneapolis today and had tickets for tonight's Twins' game.
We caught the train to the stadium.
We went in time for batting practice in the hopes that Rob or Nathan could catch a ball.
They are somewhere in this group of people.
Unfortunately their mitts remained empty.
The national anthem was played by this massive youth string orchestra.  They were amazing.  You can see their conductors on step ladders.
But what's this?  The tarp has been rolled out and there's a rain delay.

There was nothing to do but eat and take family photos.  I never dreamed of cheese curds in a canoe, but that's what I had.  Rob's history of dipping dots goes back to his childhood.

If this picture makes it look like the game has started, it's misleading.  These boys were looking at the jumbotron which had the words "rain delay" on it.
The "rain delay" turned into a postponement until tomorrow.  The Twins will play a double header tomorrow weather permitting.
An optimist would say "it could have been worse."  That optimist would be right.  Parts of Minnesota had tornadoes, one part had nine inches of rain, and the Chanhassen part of Minneapolis had two inches of rain in half an hour.  As we came back to the hotel, our phones gave off loud, abrasive noises which was a weather advisory to watch for flash flooding.  It could have been worse!
