On a good day, you can't beat living in NZ - it's the other 364 that are the problem

    Ok so I exaggerate but at the moment it feels a bit like it. Every November this happens.... it blows like hell and buckets down. On the one hand I'm glad I haven't put everything out yet (as half the lights would now be in strewn across the neighbourhood) .... but on the other hand i'm getting bit concerned as to when i can set up the lights. There doesn't seem to be an end to this weather in sight.

    Forecasting 140km winds tonight so it'll be interesting to see if the lights I have put up on the roof are still there in the morning. :(

    I have all my lights out logan and we're pretty exposed.

    The weather is driving me nuts tho everything is holding on.

    The rain is exposing shoddy or worn waterproofing, which I suppose isnt entirely a bad thing, would rather it show now than in December.

    Praying this weather is over soon.

    They have a saying in Melbourne. If you don't like the weather, just wait 10 minutes. That's why I live in Sydney haha

    Why don't you just join the rest of your countrymen over here in Oz :D There can't be too many of you left over there anyway.
    Sorry, couldn't help myself ::)
    Hope the weather settles down for you soon.

    A bit of bad weather before your show starts is a good thing and something i always hoped for before the show would start so it could expose all the issues within my display so I could manage them before i went live, so dont look at it as a completely negative thing because you have time to fix issues instead of being in show time when you have to fix it as quick as possible

    When a kiwi leaves to go to Australia, the average IQ of both countrys rise.
