Whether the weather is good or whether the weather is bad, the weather is always a story (though to be fair only when it’s bad).
On Tuesday the weather was positively appalling.
We have news of shunts, shoves, dramatic rescues and various other tales of general heavy rain and high winds.
One man had to scramble up a tree to escape the rising waters. Remarkable.
In other news we ask is it now more of a case of Derry Rumbled then Derry Rhumba? We have all the latest amid dire warnings that the South Enclosure at Dens Park could be condemned. Oof.
Golf is a great game, enjoyed my millions over many, many happy years.
But it wasn’t always graphite drivers and snazzy shirts.
Back in the day, it was hickory and plus-fours.
Some people still have something of a-hankering for those good ol’ simple days and many of them have descended on Carnoustie for the world hickory championships.
Grasping vintage sticks and dressed in all manner of historic garb, they whacked balls into (eventual) submission.
Among them were Sandy Lyle and The Courier’s very own night editor Ross McCallum aka Father Time who dug into the club bag he used when he was a teenager to complete his round (only joking Ross…).
Wednesday also sees day two of our great Glitterball Glory Days series (day one was, rather cunningly, included in Tuesday’s edition, creating something of an overall impression of a tidy sequential process).
In other news, we also cater for political types and report on an apparent rising tide of concern over Ed Miliband’s leadership of the Labour party (nothing to do with bad weather this time).
Many people think his brother would be doing a better job, while others quite simply think he’s doing a bad one. Either way, it’s all getting a bit fruity.
We have all the latest.
It promises to be yet another (potentially) award-winning edition. Please do be sure to snap up your copy. Failing that, why not try our super-soaraway digital edition?
