New Zealand current season is winter, and this winter has been a pretty wet and wild! For the last week or so there has been “Record wide and deep lows” Thats equates a shit load of rain ( half a meter in this area ( or around 19 inches )). Along with losing power and my post “July rain brings no power” which is happening far to frequently for my liking and losing a few trees over fence lines and sadly loosing a couple of calves due the the cold weather, we now have more flooding !

July rain brings no power.

I know the power went out multiple times, but I was out braving the rain, so don’t know the times.

Leasons learnt with no power:

CD (Compact Disc’s) were made to hold 79 minutes of audio because that is the length of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, 79 minutes.

It raining outside, It looks like a river down the drive.
