A soggy weekend

While Poriua had a few centimetres of nice drenching rain to soak into the soil over the weekend, other parts of the North Island had a bit more than they really wanted, with up to 30cm (that's a whole foot!) of rain falling over the weekend.

I had friends evacuated from their campsite in Taupo, and then they had drive the long way home again as the Desert Road was forced to close.
