Polar blast? Not today.

So I took a day of work today because I've felt a cold building up for the past week and last night I felt absolutely terrible (nose running like a tap, headache, stiff upper back, wheezing).

And I thought "It's probably a good day to stay at home, what with the gale force freez-ies predicted for tomorrow"(really - folks in the South Island have been shopping like the day before Good Friday, and preparing to hunker down for the next couple of days).

But...actually it's not been that cold. I turned off my heater just now when I looked out of the bedroom window, admired the lovely big rainbow in the sky, and noticed that I can't see my breath (there's no heating on in that room).

Also, I feel not too bad.Maybe it's the calm before the storm (cold-wise and weather-wise). I suppose I'll just have to wait and see.

I think you peaked too early, if Facebook status updates are anything to go by!

yeah it really WAS the calm before the storm!
My boss told us to stay at home today, but TLM's school is still open. Us working class suburbs are hardy folk.

That's funny. If Facebook is anything to go by pretty much everyone I know in Welly was trying to justify not going to work today!

And I can neither confirm nor deny that during the flood this year GGs daycare was open, so we put him in and went to the movies....

Hope you didn't get blown away I heard there were 150km winds recorded by some dude in Levin!

More like 200km per hour! It was pretty loud and all, but our neighbourhood has been mostly spared - just a few downed tree branches. My mum though - her whole fence fell over onto the neighbour's driveway and she was lucky not to lose the trampoline to another suburb!
