Real rain has finally set in and it looks as if it may last.

It's clearing now, but fingers crossed. We need a lot more of it into the divide catchment. I used to feed the trout and salmon from the lunchroom at Tekapo-B but now the water's edge has receded well out into the lake.

Not too hopeful a prospect in the current regime, but maybe...
Lovely here at present with sunshine and high cloud to the north, but there are indicators of a later moisture invasion - banks of low cloud in the seas to the southeast and tendrils of the stuff creeping over parts of the Orongorongos.

The last two Christmas/New Year periods in the Mackenzie have been dismal (ie, lots of rain) so perhaps this year'll be three-in-a-row and the lakes could be replenished. Otherwise the country should brace itself for power restrictions. Besides farmers of course. Never any restrictions there. :roll:
