Grounded again....

Shuttle stuck on the ground one more time. Last night it was weather, today it's a stuck hydrogen valve.
The shuttle can't fly in rain, since the rain will chip the tiles as it gets moving fast. Not like the old Saturn V beast that would launch in anything, get hit by lightning twice, flip the SCE to AUX breaker and keep going.
