While watching “The Apprentice” last night (and by the way, what an idiot that guy was), one of the local news teases was, “And coming up, could all of this rain be affecting more than the roads? How all of this weather could be affecting your MOOD.”
Are they serious? Isn’t there any real news? First of all, what they’re calling weather is known in other parts of the country as “drizzle.” How can they report on this while hundreds of thousands are still piecing their lives back together after the tsunami? I’m sorry, but for those of you Los Angelenos who are bummed out about the rain, suck it up.
It’s rain. Go live in New England for 10 minutes if you think this is a harsh winter. You’ll be praying for the days when all you got was rain. OK, I’ll dismount from my high, born and bred in frigid New Hampshire and still just relieved when I don’t have to scrape ice off of my car in the morning, horse.
The nice thing about this time of year is that Santa Anita is open and what better weekend to bet on the ponies than the weekend off before the Superbowl? I can’t think of one. Oh, and they have a big roof so don’t let the rain scare you off.
