Great series Kevin. Always good to see capture from Dunedin and the Taieri, even if these ones don't show it in it's best suit. I know all of these places very well and have actually seen them worse but I must say they aren't looking to good at the moment; I hear the rain has stopped today, for how long I'm not too sure.
Marg comment of living on a hill doesn't always ring true either, I heard what happened at the Berwick adventure camp and there is always the chance of land slips, espeically around the Dunedin area because it has a claw layer in many places. Hope all is good with you and you get back to having frosts and nice days soon, for your winter.

Yes I have seen the Taieri worse. That would have been when the airport was flooded. They tell us it is the 3rd highest at Outram since recordings started but this time the Silverstream stayed in. 2006 it got out and many more homes flooded. Looking forward to those frosts. Up to the rain it had been one of those indian summers. So when you turn the AC on remember what a real winter is like.

Been a bit cooler here morning and night now Kevin, still using AC in the car but. Could count on one hand the number of times I used the AC in the BMW back in Dunners, I think it was only that I was told that you had to put it on sometimes just to check it was still working. :-)
I'm over "real" winters Kevin, that's why I live here.
