#3228 ... Crazy Weather

Firstly this is not my photo and I have left Nicholas's name in it to give due credit for the image. 
Secondly, Wellington gets at least one day a year like this ... The city has an amazing calm summers day while the southern suburbs including the airport  are covered in a very thick sea fog. Many flights in and out of the capital were cancelled upsetting a lot of travel plans. 
Thanks Nicholas for capturing one of our bizarre weather occurrences.

#3220 ... Blue but not blue

Some people will be feeling blue today ... High winds, 140kph, rain, rubbish collection cancelled as the wheelie bins will blow away. However farmers will again welcome the rain. Yes it is rugged outside with flights cancelled and travel disruption across the country. Tomorrow's forecast looking better.

#3215 ... Windless

A very calm warm day with some gentle rain. Lots of people out walking. 

#3214 ... Rain Today

This is what many lawns look like after the hot dry spell. This morning Wellington had some gentle rain which will help freshen the vegetation. Sadly some of the rural areas especially in the South Island are experiencing severe drought conditions and need rain.

Yes there is a growing market for vinyl records. This is Lo-Cost Music in Petone. Apparently the Japanses are renown for producing the best as they use the highest quality vinyl.
