Rain on the roof a wel­come sound

Warwick Daily News - - YOUR SAY -

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.
