The end of days

Gale force winds all over the North, brought down power lines causing Auckland-wide blackouts. Chaos on the roads and railway lines; Airports closing down and heavy snowfall down south. Photo shows Georgina my coworker watching the storm. My house is across the harbor shrouded in that wall of white.

We're told to go home as no word when power will be restored. Problem for some but I commute by ferry so avoided the traffic jams and general mayhem (that naturally precedes the downfall of civilization).

Only had to brave the rough seas in a sturdy old tub and then a mad dash to my car.

Rest of the day at home working on my tax rebates. You know, fun stuff.
