rain, rain go away…

Seriously…enough already. I can understand once or twice, but every single friggin day…?

Brief rain patch during the Yankee-Sox game I was at on Thursday…not enough to warrant a rain delay though. Our seats were covered though, so it would not have affected us. But man, even the 5 beers downed during that game (yeah, got an early start…thanks to baby bro wanting to start pre-gaming a little after 4) did not drown out the fact that the Yanks did not show up to the game :-\ I’m going to the game this Wednesday, Andy better be dandy then…

fireworks and a fake waterfall over the east river.  happy 4th!And rain threatened to dampen (haha) plans for the 4th, but surprisingly, it really wasn’t so bad…yeah was still raining, but wasn’t the t-storms predicted, wasn’t really annoying. We had a great vantage point for the fireworks over on the Brooklyn side of the river-we got to see the fireworks to both the left and right of where we were-and according to this post on Gothamist, we had the right idea!! And even better…we had a great viewing point of not 1, but 2 of the “NYC waterfalls” πŸ™‚ Of course, afterwards the entrance to the subway seemed to resemble the subway station at a Yankee game when everyone stays for the full 9 innings…but that was a good reason to grab a drink and wait for the crowds to lessen…right? πŸ™‚

Rain again today…OK since my long run was planned for tomorrow, but damn…rain is predicted yet again for tomorrow!!! Yeah, nothing I can do, I’ll get the miles in. But that doesn’t mean I’m happy about it πŸ™‚

  1. Welcome to the summer weather Chicago’s been having. Until yesterday, we’ve had a whole lot of rain and chilly days. However, this weekend: Perfect. 80, sunny, no humidity. So maybe it’s headed your way.

  2. We had a little bit of rain today on our long run, but it was welcome due to the humidity. Put in about 41.5 miles on trails, but the biggest victory of the day was no thunderstorms.Good luck on your long run tomorrow.

  3. BCG-maybe, we did escape the rain today :)anthony-41.5 miles? you crazy!! πŸ™‚ i just barely made it through 12…

  4. Turned out to be a perfect morning for a long run, huh? Hope you had a good run.
