HASH TRASH - RUN 668
A Quick One
Place: Park Nahal Hadera (Hadera River Park)
Hares: Twin Peaks, aided by C3Po, R2D2

There's a Hebrew word for the kind of weather we're having: Foo-ya! Humble Scribe has really tried her best to keep her vow and refrain from commenting on the real weather, preferring instead to remark only on the varying degrees of summer heat. But this week's downpour has proved too much. It's like something (or someone) is out to get the Holyland Hash...

The timing was eerie. It was almost as if some wicked rainmakers actually looked down upon our hares from the heavens, bided their time* while the trail was being set in cloudy, breezy but dry conditions and then... opened the floodgates the moment the Hash began.

Need more proof? The sun came out at the halfway point to enjoy a round of "Father Abraham"**, then disappeared as the second half began. All this wetness led the runners to complain that there weren't enough flour blobs. In her defense, the Hare has claimed "there were blobs the size of grapefruits but they got washed away" and noted that at one point the rain and wind was so strong "it was coming down horizontally". Foo-ya!

In short, the Hare reports, "It was wet and miserable, and nobody followed the trail because they said there were no blobs". A moment of levity was provided by a stuck car*** whose driver was ably assisted by Bravefart, Goldmember and Twin Peaks while the male Hashers, no doubt in the name of equality of the sexes, looked on.

The real man of the hour, however, was big-brother-to-be Swamp Monster, who actually saved everyone's life by warning of an oncoming car and averting disaster. You're never too young to be a hero, so here's to him!****

Down-downs
Hares - C3Po, Twin Peaks, R2D2
FRB - Goldmember, Turn-ho
SCB - Dr. Do-little

The rain was coming down so hard at this point it was decided to forfeit the rest of the Down-downs and go home or face the alternative, drinking that popular American beverge, watery beer. Foo yaaa!
