Weather Blasts Northeast, Baseball Games

Snow, rain, icy rain and strong winds hit the Northeast U.S. this weekend and those weather conditions still are a factor in many places. Forecasters are saying parts of New York state, Pennsylvania, Vermont and New Hampshire could get as much as 12 inches of snow by today. The unseasonable conditions force postponements of five Major League baseball games Sunday, including a doubleheader in Pittsburgh between the Pirates and Giants, and has already forced a time change in today's Patriot's Day game at Fenway Park in which the Red Sox are to host the Los Angeles Angels. The game was to start at 10:05 a.m., but has been tentatively rescheduled for 12:05 p.m. because of heavy rain and high winds. One sporting event that will not be affected is the Boston Marathon. It will be run today. Expect more baseball postponements later today as we get closer to game times.

Rain hit this weekend's LPGA event in Florida. This Associated Press photo shows Lorena Ochoa of Mexico slipping into a pair rain pants on the third fairway during the Ginn Open in Reunion, Fla. Where are the pictures of Natalie Gulbis getting all wet? It's about time we were able to bring some sexiness to the rainout blog. It was only a matter of time. Thanks, Lorena!
