Ah ! The annual weather bomb phenomenon . This area is still clearing up after the last 2 weather bombs.

Is the weather better? No. It is simply different.

I like the idea of a 'weather bomb', it sounds like very friendly.

Seems like all that rain we never had during the summer has saved itself up in a special reservoir in the sky. Drought, what drought?

The weather in the Wellington region on sunday was glorious, 20 degrees at least, today, well how different could two days be, rain, rain and more rain.
