Winter has come and it's forced yet another Cubs postponement

Hell officially froze over 18 months ago when the Cubs won the World Series. It's just taken this long for us to feel the effects on Earth.

With wintry weather once again hitting Chicago - more snow and sub-freezing temperatures - the Cubs and Cardinals have been postponed for Monday night. 

Wrigley looked like this Monday morning:

The game was originally scheduled to start at 6:05 p.m., but word of the postponement came down shortly after Noon.

This marks the third snow/rain/winter-out of the homestand, following last Monday's home opener and Sunday's series finale with the Atlanta Braves.

Even when the Cubs have played at Wrigley this past week, they've endured frigid temperatures, high winds and overall miserable conditions, as Saturday evidenced during that epic comeback.

The silver lining (beyond not having to play in awful weather) is it gives Anthony Rizzo another day for his back to heal before coming off the disabled list.

This game will be made up Saturday, July 21st as part of a split doubleheader.
