Last three to four weeks we had unusual weather. It was still just over 20 degrees C which is quite hot for this time of year. We also had a lot of rain too. The warm weather brought two cyclones. Cyclone Debbie was the first one and less than a week it was followed by cyclone Cook. Debbie did not reach us in the lower North Island but cyclone Cook brought heavy rain and strong winds. People were asked to put their long weekend arrangements on hold because some roads were expected to wash away, slips could also occur.
As soon as the weather cleared again I found more toadstools popping out. I found these on the lawn on the roadside.
Autumn is upon us here in New Zealand.
Leaves are changing colour.
With the warm days and lots of rain,
toadstools came out
showing off their colourful heads.
Trompie had his last haircut before the cold is upon us!
This morning everything is foggy.
From my doorstep.
We are expecting
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.
Intrigued by these toadstools!
She nearly squashed them under her shoe!
I am very grateful that I could have the opportunity to have this lovely Internationale Student living with me the whole year.
She is a special young woman I will always remember.
She is going back, Thursday December 4, to HongKong .
