Rain on the roof a welcome sound
WELL the heavens really opened yesterday, didn’t they?
From our new office on Kenilworth St we get a great view of the outdoors and watched the heavy rain pelt down for most of the afternoon.
It was an amazing change from recent months when, although there has been rain forecast, we’ve seen a few drops then nothing.
While it takes much more than a few periods of rain to help our drought-stricken region, it is good to see us getting a bit of moisture back.
And it’s uplifting to see things looking more green, not to mention how nice it is to fall asleep with the sound on the roof.
It may not be the best timing for punters, who are eager to head to the Warwick Cup today.
But it does remind me of last year when wild wind swirled around the pavilion in the afternoon.
From what I can remember, we hardly noticed as the atmosphere was so great that the chatting and eating served us quite fine.
I’m not a mad punter though, so that might have something to do with it.
While I’ll have to miss this year’s Cup because of a wedding, I hope it’s a great day for everyone who heads to the track. Even if it does rain, it’s still going to be a great day.
There’s nothing quite like getting dressed up with your mates for a day at the track.
Make sure you keep an eye out for a Daily News photographer. You might see your face in the paper next week.
