Beautiful weather and no rain in sight

The last bit of rain has been some time ago and the weather forecast shows no rain for the next two weeks. Knowing the weather in and around Auckland, this may change but does not really look like it.

The water tank level is getting low so we have ordered new spring water for Monday next week. Guess it will arrive just in time before we may run dry with the extended family in the house and some friends staying too.

For our guests it means beautiful weather to enjoy. Have a look at all the activities one can do.

We just celebrated our daughter’s 10th birthday and came back from some laser tag games in Glenfield.

Drylands

The last few months were pretty dry with no rainfall other than a few drops that pretty much instantly evaporated upon hitting the ground.
I think the last rain was some time before Christmas last year which would make it three months with no rain at all.

Finally some rain?

It’s been a long time without any rain. Not sure how much this will be but anything is better than nothing.

Even rain can be beautiful

Over the last couple of weeks we had quite a mix of weather – typical spring. From lovely warm and sunny days where you easily get sunburned to torrential rain that flooded the valley.
