In the words of minimalist composer Steve Reich ‘It’s Gonna Rain‘ alright! The composer’s relentless deconstruction and reconstruction of one simple phrase ‘It’s Gonna Rain‘ just about sums up the weather here in Wellington which struggles to cope with one of the worst rainstorms in recent memory – 123 mm in our local area in the last 24 hours (that’s about 4.84 inches we think) half of this fell in two hours!
Our own Hutt River (see video) is running at high levels with logs and branches sweeping down towards Wellington Harbour at frightening speed. All of this, for California AdventureCat pal Savvy, is amazing to see as they live under drought conditions! Let’s hope it eases off soon so we can concentrate on getting Harvey back up health (full report tomorrow).
