    Default North Island Floods

    Is that pesky whinging pack of north islanders still floating or they about to sink in all the rain, One day of rain and high winds and all the north islanders start whinging. Maybe us south islanders should cut the cable and let them drift away.

    It has been a very interesting night here in south/east Auckland, down the road from us the power was out & a big gum tree fell over the road not far from us

    All this heavy rain and skys satellite transmission is still holding up with no rain fade, for those who said earlier on this year that the heavy rain would wipe out skys reception you were very very wrong.Hooray for optus D1

    Auckland weather has been pussy as, a bit of light rain and some slight winds. Up north was a bit worse though. My parents got trapped on their property again.

    As an ex-Southlander (who lived next to the banks of the Mataura - which flooded heaps) the conditions up north are really quite bad. This area is recovering for the tornados, while up north they are getting basically a months rainfall in 24 hours
    Incidentally, where in the south do you live Hitech?

    And if it was South would you say that? Nothing funny about the massive flooding they have there.

    Get over the anti-Auckland ****.

    Well we were without power from around 3pm until midnight but I know of others further west of Whangarei that are still without power (& water in some places)
    We had to cook our dinner on the fire place

    I can see a tree over the road from our house but it looks like cars are still able to get around it.
    There was definitely not as much rain as we had in the storm earlier this year as the water did not cover the road like it did then.

    We had a smallish tree fall over onto a fence so guess what I'll be doing this weekend

    WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEE
    We lost power just before 7pm last night.

    Good thing I had candles jammed into bolognase jars which I had kept for a few years as backup.
    This was probably one of the few times where we as a family actually sat together and argued with each other (closest we get to talking)

    Our house runs on gas so food and heating was no problem.

    We got connected at around 5am today.

    I'm probably one of the few people in Auckland that actually enjoyed it.
    Especially since we still had electricity when the cable at the Otahuhu substation blacked out the central half of Auckland last year. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    My shutdown application

    Call me Angel Nob Bobstickles. The baking vending builder who can't fix it.
