imhilien: Celebration (Celebration)
Right, so I got up this morning and turned on the TV just in time to see the Team New Zealand boat cross the finish line in Bermuda to win the Americas Cup. Hooray! This will be the third time we've brought the cup home.

Well done, boys, you've done us proud.

Cyclone #2

imhilien: Rainbow (Default)
Well, New Zealand has been graced this week by another cyclone this month, but yesterday it fortunately missed Auckland. I looked at the weather last night and thought, 'gosh, it missed us by a whisker'. *Auckland wipes brow*

Unfortunately the Bay of Plenty was targeted, which includes Edgecombe, which became a lake last week because of the previous cyclone. Ugh. I think though that wind rather than rain was the problem this time.

The cyclone is heading south now... hugs to those on my f-list who need them.

Well, the remnants of Cyclone Debbie recently passed through New Zealand. The town of Edgecombe in central New Zealand copped the worst, turning into a lake when a protective wall between the town and the now over-full river came down. People had to flee, many without their pets (although animal welfare people have arrived to search for them). It wasn't so bad in my neighbourhood, though an apartment building across town had part of a hillside fall on them. No one was hurt, though.

Another cyclone is currently east-ish of the Pacific Islands but looks like coming down to make New Zealand an Easter visit. Ugh. Isn't there a way to put cyclones in the friendzone?
