Calm before the Storm

Hi There,
She is on her way Cyclone Luci.  Tonight is when it all begins.  Loads of rain and wind.  Garden is so dry it needs a water but I am not sure how it will cope with it all.

Photo of Auckland's skyline this morning looks like a massive WARNING for us. You know the old saying 'red sky in the morning shepherd's warning'.  So should I be off getting stocked up and ready for this storm? What would I need?  We joke about it, if anything went wrong we would head to Mother-in-laws place.  She's our civil defence place.  She has enough food and drink to feed us all for months!  Only if we can get there.  I shouldn't joke about this as the poor people in Christchurch must not be looking forward to this as they just got flooded last week and I guess they are still recovering from that only to have more rain hit this weekend.  I just hope it isn't as bad as the weather forecasters are saying and that everyone is safe.  I think we can safely say after this weekend that will be it for the nice Summery weather.

So I think there will be loads of movies watched, board games played, baking to be had.  Not to mention crocheting up a storm (sorry about the terrible pun!)  It will be snuggly.

Last night was Cubs night.  Which saw the family venture out to Cornwallis Wharf for a spot of fishing.  The week early our eldest lovely had made a sort of fishing rod with wire, hook, sinker all rolled onto a piece of wood.  He was so excited to get out there and "catch a snapper".

After an hour and a half, loads of bites and patience but no catch he yells "that was the best fun ever!"
So great family night out!

Where ever you are and whatever you do stay safe this weekend.
Take care,
