A Braves-Astros game was called due to inclement weather and/or the apocalypse

Perhaps you saw that Friday's Astros-Braves game was called after 6 1/2 innings due to rain. No big deal, right? This kind of thing happens all the time, especially in March. After all, with a sky like this at first pitch, how bad could things be?

Well, as it turns out, "looming steel-grey death cloud." That's how bad.

There are rain delays, and then there are rain delays.
