We have had an extended period of rain across the Lower North Island which is causing a few issues with flooding. In theory at least, we should have weather cold enough to have snow, but we don't, so we live like walking sponges.
Our road is rather worse for wear. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. The dog belongs to our neighbour and friend. He is a livestock dog, but today he was "dressing up" as a water dog. A happier creature you could not find!
