2013 U.S. Open At Merion: Thursday Is Derecho Day?

I'm already tired of hearing about this storm that's going to take a course draining well and making a mess of Merion, if forecasts are to be believed.

Jay Coffin explains the meaning of a derecho, which is expected to halt play sometime after lunch and begin a property evacuation of sorts at the 2013 U.S. Open.

Golf Channel's Golf Central story previewing the weather and day one. (I had it embedded but it's another of the automatic video players that threatens to get you in trouble in the office.)

Why do GolfChannel videos stream so poorly? Or should I say why do they barely stream at all?!? Lastly, why do they hide the the GolfCentral replays daily? Ed Snowden would have a tough time finding those things!

Best of luck to everyone at Merion! Scary looking radar, be careful.

I think a derecho mighb be better than listening to Chris Berman.
