This morning everything is foggy.

From my doorstep.

We are expecting

Cyclone Cook.

It is already battering the Northern part of the North Island

and is slowly moving down south to us.

We are warned to stay inside,

have our emergency bags ready.

The next 48 hours is going to be tricky to everyone.

Winds of up to 160km p hour are expected and Lots of rain.

Today’s Tip: To make sure your edge packs a punch, use a photo editing tool to check the alignment and adjust the image, if needed, so that your edge is perfectly straight.
