Storms at the airport?

 

Titirangi fine and sunny, slight breeze... Perfect :thumbup:

4 hours later it rained... A LOT! Flash flooding even made it to the news back in Australia.

 

Power was out for 3 hours too. :(

 

The nice neighbour (the one without dogs) was looking forward to watching the cricket... The power was back on just in time to see the presentation for the man of the match.

Apparently lines were damaged at Riverhead by a direct strike. They said it only affected about 50 homes. I think it was a lot lot more than just 50 homes. All Friday Evening at about 10 minute intervals, the power would trip off for 15 seconds or so and then come on again. Gave up trying to watch a recorded programme. Had to restart the thing and find the point we had got to and got to watcha few minutes and then go through the entire excersise again.

Its persisting down. You guys have hexed the weekend!

Two minutes after this post we had a downpour of biblical proportions at work in South Auckland, an internal gutter blocked and we flooded. I found myself running along a factory roof in a thunderstorm with lightning, what could go wrong with that.

Anyway, it prevented major damage, and the weekend turned out one of the best we've had, so I take back the 'you hexed it' comment.

I even accomplished a season goal I have , to anchor somewhere new ( despite a few decades cruising the gulf.)

What a fantastic weekend it was, a long overdue dose of decent summer cruising weather. Didn't mind the lack of wind (it will be back again soon enough), it meant we had a great time lazing around the Kawau area swimming, fishing, diving, BBQ-ing and chilling - just enjoying warm weather and blue skies for a change. :D

 

The Squadron guys were probably wishing for a bit more wind, even TVS appeared to be stationary as we motored past them about 10pm Fri night whilst they inched towards the finish line off Bon Accord. But the post-race partying obviously made up for any dull racing, the music was coming from Lidgard Bay til 5am!
