Cool mornings now – our Japanese maple looked like it was early April in mid Feb so autumn has been a word used a lot in this house. Starting to get foggyish mornings here in Mangatangi (once called Franklin but now Nth Waikato). Thinking your up to all sorts of mischief this week looking forward to whats been happening next week.
All the best.

Thanks for the info David.
Phil is away due to a family bereavement but will be back around Thursday next week I believe.
Yes the mornings are getting a bit cool indeed. For a second there I thought you meant Frankton, Hamilton. A tornado hit there in 1948 I always remember from my early investigations into NZ’s tornado history, 25th August 1948 more accurately.
