Unfortunatly I missed the show living in West Auckland, It was great reading the updates from people in the thick of it and I loved the pics.

Thank you for your great site.

Thank you all for the updates about the storm, Over here in Tauranga we could see the lighting around the hills. It looked beautiful from where I was.

Whats the chance of more today?

Also I see that the metservice is showing rain for the weekend… What do you think the weather will be like?

Ditto for me in Tairua, for the second night running! Watching at around 9pm, I was counting between lightning flashes for some time and not often getting past 5 seconds! Incredible.

I could see the one that dumped on Pukekohe from Whitianga earlier in the evening too – this amazing anvil shape towering well above the Coromandel ranges against a clear sky and setting sun. Some of the sights of the past few days (from afar) have blown me away. Sometimes it’s hard to decide whether it’s better to watch from a distance or be in the thick of it!
