In this day and age, social media can be of great use when warning fans about a weather delay in the middle of the game.
JUST IN: Tonight's match has been temporarily suspended in the 17th minute due to inclement weather. Stay tuned for more details. #SKCvHOU— Sporting Kansas City (@SportingKC) August 30, 2014
It can also be great for keeping us entertained as we wait out the storm. Here are some of the highlights of funny tweets and cool nature pictures as the sky lit up around the stadium.

Frugal fans' rain plan: 1. Buy one Boulevard; 2. Drink down to last 1 inch; 3. Let rainwater fill cup to top: Voila! Free Budweiser!— Steve Brisendine (@SteveBrisendine) August 30, 2014

OK Houston, get your orange clouds away from our stadium please. That's not cool. #SKCvHOU— Reporting KC (@ReportingKC) August 30, 2014
Out go the orange clouds, in come the blue clouds... BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? (Can we restart the game already?)— Reporting KC (@ReportingKC) August 30, 2014
Is the sky supposed to be red? @Kccauldron still going strong. #SKCvHOU pic.twitter.com/rn24RuMpid— The Blue Testament (@BlueTestamentKC) August 30, 2014
This is what happens when all those fans yell "ZEEUUUSSSS." The real one shows up, gets jealous, goes on lightning tantrum.— Steve Brisendine (@SteveBrisendine) August 30, 2014
After more than an hour, we finally got back underway.
Thanks for the lovely show Mother Nature! Now let's go get 3 points here @SportingPark! #skc pic.twitter.com/EHSeWoJemu— David Ficklin (@davidficklin) August 30, 2014
