Here comes the initial downpour. [800x600][1600x1200]

The tarp is on. About when the tarp was put on, it stopped raining. They left it on, though, with a thunderstorm headed this way. [800x600][1600x1200]

Here come the dark clouds. [800x600][1600x1200]

The downpour from the right field concourse. Plenty of thunder and lightning. They made people clear the upper deck seats. [800x600][1600x1200]

Now it's really coming down. [800x600][1600x1200]

A look out the gate. [800x600][1600x1200]

The rain has stopped, so here comes the grounds crew. [800x600][1600x1200]

Removing the tarp. The delay ended up being about 90 minutes. [800x600][1600x1200]
