Well, there’s a small boat made of china
Is going nowhere on the mantelpiece
Well, do I lie like a lounge room lizard
Or do I sing like a bird released

Everywhere you go you always take the weather with you…

-- Neil Finn, Mullane Finn and Brian Timothy (Crowded House) and as frequently performed by Jimmy Buffett.

Which brings us to a little subject we have to face each year right about now – the WEATHER.

So what if it’s raining now. We don’t care about NOW. We care about Saturday.

Drum roll, please.

SATURDAY: Sunny, 66 degrees.

In a word, PERFECT.

If you are one of those “fairweather” race goers who waits to decide if you are going until the last minute ‘cause it might “not be perfect,” we’ve got good news for you – weather that’s just about as “fair” as it gets this time of year. Let’s call it “perfect.”

So, are you going to “lie like a lounge room lizard” or “sing like a bird released?”

Everywhere you go, you always take the weather with you.

We’re taking our weather to Great Meadow on Saturday. How about you?
