I just returned from BMO Field in Toronto where Toronto FC was playing FC Dallas. It was a relatively unremarkable match except for the weather. And as I type, thunder continues to rumble around me.

There was a 30 minute stop part-way through the first half because of weather. After the break, officials resumed play with 10-15 minutes remaining in the half. Rain started to fall in thick, heavy drops and lightning began to strike in the far distance. At halftime, fans were asked to leave their seats and find safety below the grandstand because a storm was fast approaching.

Here's a video of the storm from where I stood:

Officials eventually postponed the match until further notice.
