#1913 ... Greased lightening

Not my photo but one taken by another quick Wellington person ... this has done the rounds on the internet and it really shows quite graphically the nature of the storm we had over the city.

Not my photo .... however a great night image of the Embassy Theatre at the end of Courtenay Place ... one of Wellingtons grand movie theatres ... refurbished and still showing that classic character.
