Inning #3. Who moved the lake?

What can I say? First we couldn't get out on the roof. Melody got us there though. With the help of John from engineering we found ourselves on the eastern roof. Not good. The eastern roof is much further than the western roof from the lake. But still, it was my best shot. This one's for you, Mel ...

"When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)"

Then came the moment of truth. I had a crowd. There were a couple of people watching from down below. I think I saw "News Chopper 3" circling above. (Not sure about that one ...) And then ....

Tomorrow is expected to be a rainout.
