The last couple of days it ‘s been pretty horrible outside here in Wellington and in many parts of New Zealand. The other day we had flooding in a few placed in the city. Some of them right outside where I work. However, they managed to get rid of them quite fast, and just a few hours later it was all dried up. This morning when we checked the weather online, this is what we saw:
24.4 mm of rain is a lot. Almost enough to be classified as torrential rain. However, when I looked a bit later, it’s been downgraded a lot for Wellington City. Unfortunately there are other parts of the country close to Wellington that aren’t doing so great right now. Schools are closed and roads are blocked off due to flooding or slips.
Jeremy told me yesterday that they’ve said this winter is going to be a lot colder and stormier than the last. I’m really not looking forward to that. I guess it’s going to be a winter where most of it is spent indoors. Better stock up on candles, movies, blankets etc. Fingers crossed we won’t get too much flooding.
