Here in Loudoun, dark skies and it keeps on raining.  Makes me wonder if this game will get played tonight.

My end of Loudoun is the same.   It got ugly but no rain  ...   yet.

What do you think gents? Should I lay awake browsing the internet for research purposes waiting for the rain to dissipate and the game to start or should I just call it quits and try to nod off now?

im thinking about 45 minutes. Any chance in that time?

Ashburn here.  Haven't gotten full-blown pouring.  More a steady stream of light rain but the skies look ugly.

It'll be at least an hour before start.

Looking at the weather forecast it's kinda looking like a 2 game sweep. May work in the Nat's favor with the pitching matchup.

If you can fall asleep go for it. I don't see this clearing out anytime soon.

(Mindfact) I think he's from the Dranesville area.    Doug Kammerer is a Herndon kid.

Topper is off though. It's the weekend guy Howard filling in. It's not a huge cell but it's moving so slowly.

DirecTV just kicked it.  That usually means that it is better to get a beer rather than curse the darkness.

He's generally pretty good too.  No Topper though.  Gonna say 8:45 now.

:lol:    I wonder if Topper calls in during "iffy" weather.     I bet he does.    He's a weather nerd junkie.

ESPN just did a live shot of Nats Park and it looks like the rain has let up a lot.

I remember a few years back when he cut short a family vacation in Colorado to rush back to cover a winter storm. I believe I read somewhere that his license plates read WX GURU.

He probably has a whole damn weather station in his man cave.    :)

I predict this game will start sometime between now and September 11, a mutual off day for the teams.  Almost want this game to be played on 9/11.  New York and Washington playing baseball on that date is a nice "F you" to terrorists everywhere.
