Weather Watches and Warnings

It’s Murphy’s Law again – and we wish he would stop.  We can practically guarantee that when we want to pack the caravan, the rain comes down.  Several trips were done this morning, and once we stopped for lunch, the rain came down, heavier than ever.

But wait – there’s more!  Cyclone Cook is set to bring chaos across New Zealand.  The country is being warned to be prepare for damaging gales, enormous storm surges and widespread flooding as Cyclone Cook bears down, threatening to plunge regions into chaos.    A State of Emergency has already been declared in flood ravaged Bay of Plenty, the area which suffered so badly last week with Cyclone Debbie.

Luckily, our Easter Weekend caravan adventure is only 20km or so up the road at Foxton, not too far to travel in the expected wild weather tomorrow.  So fingers crossed that Cyclone Cook will pass us by quickly, and we can enjoy our weekend away.  We will certainly be keeping a wary eye out on the weather.
