The Day Mother Nature Took Control

Well, today Mother Nature said “Enough is Enough.  I am in control here”.

Here in Wellington, we have been enjoying summer weather most days, with no or very occasional rain, while the rest of the country has been battling rain, floods and high winds.  But today MN said “Time to stand up and be counted.  It’s time you got some rain and wind.”

So late yesterday she acted on her promise(?).  We have been sorely needing rain for the past few weeks and have been confined to using only handheld hoses for our gardens and then only on alternate days.  So we were quite happy to see the rain.

We just got very wet and the wind was very strong at our place.  But now it has moved on.    Other areas of the city were not so fortunate.  Our low lying coastal areas were hammered by rain and huge waves and surface flooding as a strong southerly wind coupled with a high tide.

And then, amongst all of this, there was an Earthquake at 8.12 am.  Quite small, only 4.5 on the Richter Scale.  See how blase we are about earthquakes here.

So another day comes to a close. I have just finished reading The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny.  Watch for my review on my other site in the next day or so.

  1. Ah dear dear friend, you make our minus 27C of yesterday sound positively boring! Brrrrrrr

  2. Crazy times with the weather, Judith. Glad all is calm again. 🙂 🙂

  3. Hi. OK. Scottish weather is bracing today by the seashore at Turnberry. Two jumpers and a jacket plus a respectable pair of troosers, gloves, scarf.

    • Since that day we have had sunshine and more sunshine and crazy temperatures, on occasion here in Wellington up to 28/29 degrees C. So different from last year when we really had no summer. So from a sunny Wellington, thanks Chris.

    • Oh, Chris, I forgot to say that I had lived in Lenzie for 8 years so know about the Scottish weather, but I loved living there,

So what's on your mind?
