"Space shuttle Atlantis was supposed to make the slow crawl from the Vehicle Assembly Building to launch pad 39B at Kennedy Space Center before sunrise Monday, with the 8-hour trek scheduled to begin just after midnight. But heavy rain and thunderstorms have forced a one-day postponement."
"Workers are being told that rollout has been scrubbed for the night. Atlantis' trip to the pad is now anticipated to start at 10 p.m. EDT on Monday evening"

Weather causes another scrub for Atlantis' rollout

Another evening of nasty weather in Central Florida has forced NASA to scrub the planned transfer of space shuttle Atlantis from the Vehicle Assembly Building to launch pad 39B. The rollout has been rescheduled for 2 a.m. EDT Wednesday.

Atlantis heads for the pad.
After a two-day delay because of stormy weather, space shuttle Atlantis has begun the slow move from the Vehicle Assembly Building to launch pad 39B this morning. The ship emerged from the 52-story building at about 1:30 a.m. EDT.

a tropical storm name Chris projected path is a threat now.

I think they should bring the crawler back.
