Playoff baseball tonight in Yankee Stadium, and the game’s start has been delayed by rain.
Back in the olden days, I would have been perfectly happy with tracking the storm on National Weather Service radar. But that is so spring 2006. I mean really.
Fire up Google Earth and type “Yankee Stadium” in the search box. Bingo, you’re zooming in on the Bronx. Then go to the Weather Service’s KMZ Generator page. A bunch of choices there. I picked “All images for single radar” and chose New York City. Click “submit” and after some computational dialoging, Metamorpho Changeo! My desktop computer has a fully zoomable and scrollable weather radar map of Yankee Stadium and environs.
Looks like at least another half hour before the storm blows through, so I can get some work done before game time.
