The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME -

Yes, the rain has been wel­come. It may have slightly damp­ened last week’s Massey grad­u­a­tions, but at least apart from one par­tic­u­lar down­pour, the city has been spared any ex­treme weather events.

The be­nign au­tumn con­tin­ues, with lo­cal lawn-mow­ing busi­nesses con­tin­u­ing to make ‘hay’ thanks to the ex­tended grass-grow­ing sea­son.

Even our lead story about the ded­i­ca­tion of surf life saver Lizzy Baty helps foster the ‘end­less sum­mer’ im­pres­sion.

No ex­cuses then for not get­ting out and en­joy­ing what we have, even if a cer­tain per­son over­heard in a city cafe, seemed an­noyed by the de­lay to the start of win­ter. Per­haps the lady in ques­tion had a stock of win­ter cloth­ing she was ei­ther hop­ing to sell or im­pa­tient to wear.

The cold will come soon enough.

In the mean­time there’s plenty on in our lit­tle patch of Palmy­dise, so make sure you make the most of it
