The old saying goes that April Showers will bring May Flowers, but what happens if those April Showers turn into April flurries? That’s the case on Wednesday for the Minnesota Twins and Toronto Blue Jays as their afternoon bout has been postponed due to a snow storm in downtown Minneapolis.
With Target field blanketed in snow and the stadium not fit for a baseball game, it has been announced that the game scheduled for today has been moved back to Thursday where we will see a day-night doubleheader.
Twins game postponed. Doubleheader tomorrow

This isn’t the first time that a Twins game has been snowed out and it serves as vindication for opponents of the stadium who stroked their long be a with their Howard Hughes fingernails foretelling that snow would be a factor at baseball games.
While no one is complaining about the downtown palace the Twins built, it turns out snow being a factor in games wasn’t such a crazy notion after all.
