It's been a pretty crazy day at the office today as torrential rain and downpours hit Auckland City! We saw similar sights to this driving to work this morning; as waves smashed into the rocks and buffeted up at the side of our car:
Tamaki Drive is currently closed and many residents are without power. Traffic has deteriorated to the point where one of our admin staff has just joined us at 10:30am after leaving home at 8 on a journey that usually takes 30 minutes. We hope everyone out there drives safe and battens down the hatches.
Keep up to date at the NZ Herald website and try not to drive anywhere that's not absolutely crucial. Oh, and wish me luck getting home in a few hours!!
