It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.

How has your summer been?
The new Countdown isn't far off opening and the roads are ready for the extra traffic - and foot traffic. But what do you think of the raised, green crossing so close to the Champion Rd roundabout, driving north from Richmond?
