These clouds brought heavy torrential rain to lower parts of the North Island. Both State High Ways were closed due to slips and flooding. It is still raining heavily – 8:40 pm.

I have not seen the Hutt River as full as it is at the moment.

Luckily I live higher up the hill. The river won’t reach me.

Wellington on a wet and rainy day


I went for a jolly ride into Wellington this morning.

There is a big cricket ball in the civic square.
