As the bulk of Aotearoa drowns under this deluge of rain and crazy weather, so too do we here on the west coast of the lower north.
This past weekend was a case of taking both a raincoat and a tube of sunscreen if you were heading out anywhere, the weather extremes were intense.
Today was a stunner... in Whanganui we had sunshine, we had strong norwesters, we had 26 degrees and we had thunder and lightening.
And at 5.30 this evening we had a downpour that left SH declaring we should be growing rice instead of a lawn as it looked like a padi field... even Riley the cat was transfixed by the instant lake that appeared next to our back deck.
I hope where ever you are that your garden is weathering the storm... at least it's getting watered!
