My in laws live just west of Whangarei, only about 5 mins from our place.
They've been without power since Tuesday afternoon and have been told they won't have it back on until the weekend!

I lost power for 10 hours last month during the "BIG 30 year storm event" in Auckland.  I thought it was the end of the world.  I have no idea how I would cope waking up without it!





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

I lost power for a couple of hours yesterday around lunch time. Now my external hard drives don't seem to be recognised by the computer... :/

robjg63:

Wellington frequently hits the headlines when the weather is bad.
Aucklanders watch it and understand.
I have never heard an Auckland make these sorts of comments about the rest of the country to be honest.
As a former South Islander (born and raised for the first 30 years of my life) I dont get this negative Auckland thing.

I have....Newsboy and Mikey down in Gore for instance.....


Anyway, we are aware of Wtgn, I for one, would hate living there. I do have relatives there.
Wind here in Waitakere, not much different from a day at Piha really......annoying but nothing to panic over.
Northland on the other hand seem to be getting it again.
