Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land.

It’s always been a phenomenon interesting to observe that nights are mild when rainy and cold when clear – shows you what clouds cover can do to climate and temperatures.

So the rainy weather made for some mud and milder temperatures than it has been over the last few days.

The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.

Flooding – groundhog day

This year was special and I had not yet seen the water that high. Kumeu and Waimauku townships flooded too and other suburbs in West Auckland. For some it was pretty bad and I feel sorry for the affected people – and animals.

Water everywhere – in the midst of winter

It’s been rather wet, foggy and cold in the last couple of days. The cats spent more time inside and expressing a form of cabin fever when awake but they are mostly asleep.

The horses are asking for more food, the chickens are hiding in their house and the ducks – well, the ducks are in their element.
