I had the (mis)fortune to stay in Travel Lodge Wembley once and thought it was hilarious! So, so bad it was really very good. But I always find 'bad' things far funnier and more satisfying than 'good' (after the event).

Hope your day gets better!

Can not believe these winds. Never known them to be soooo strong for so long. Took the dog for a walk and he got blown into the road. No cars about fortunately.

I am finding the wind to be good practice for me and girlfriend for our move coming up to Wellington.
Just need to find some lead soled shoes for her yet.

The winds you've been having back home have been far worse than Windy Wellington. We've had gorgeous weather for a couple of weeks now. Beats the snow in Scotland.

These winds we are currently experiencing in the UK would be good practice for those moving to NZ.

My wife has been literally blown over in Wellington, I have been struck by flying debris in Auckland and in Christchurch it has been so windy for me I couldn't get the car door open, when I went round to open the other one and climb in through the passenger seat the wind wrenched the door out of my hand!

Just look at an atlas to realise New Zealand (not just Wellington) is a very windy place!

Wellington has come to respect the wind and turned it into an art form.
