Default more wild weather in Wellington

It absolutely chucked it down last night - Friday - rain on the roof woke me up and lunchtime Saturday it is still pouring - I do believe that might be Noah building a giant waka on Mount Kaukau! The harbour has turned brown with so much storm water, the Hutt River has burst its banks - not good news for the start of the croquet season in Lower Hutt, as the Waimarie club is the wrong side of the stopbank - as is an electricity substation, which has also seemed to me incredibly bad urban planning. There are landslips all over the place - the Johnsonville rail link is blocked and a train stuck in the Kaiwharawhara tunnel - Paekakariki which was decimated by slips a couple of years ago, is starting to slip again.

It's not looking good for the match tonight - Wellington v Auckland at the Westpac Stadium!

I'd forgotten about the slip at Horokiwi - Eastbourne is on alert again and there's flooding in Lower Hutt but..... tomorrow will be sunny and the harbour will turn blue again!
