…….seen during Maisie’s and my early morning walk. Lenticular formations. Very little wind to start the day but the nor-weather blew up with a vengeance while friend Lynette and I were gardening this afternoon. There has been very mixed weather throughout the country today. Hot and dry in parts of the North Island and a state of emergency called in Gore, Southland due to torrential rains and flooding. Fires and gale force winds in parts of the inland Canterbury. Snow is expected in the South Island tomorrow. Weird weather.
