Hi neighbours. Transport authorities have pulled double-decker buses from the Auckland Harbour Bridge and are warning it could close completely during a massive storm forecast for much of the country. this weekend.
MetService previously said travel disruptions are likely this weekend, as severe gales, heavy rain and big waves batter the country, followed by cold Antarctic air bringing snow to low levels in the deep south.
Meteorologists believe the storm could be “one of the most widespread severe weather events this year”.
Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) general manager of transport services Brett Gliddon advised motorcyclists and those driving high-sided vehicles to avoid the bridge.
It's that time ladies and Gentlemen, that time of the year when we can enjoy the outdoors so much more & when everything seems so much better - DAYLIGHT SAVINGS!
Don't forget to put your clocks forward one hour tonight before going to bed.
Here is a guide to putting your clocks forward (all tongue in cheek of course):
1. Smartphone - leave it alone - it's magic, it does it all by myself with help form the cell phone genies😲
2. Sundial - move your house slightly to the right🙃
3. Oven/microwave - you will need one of the following: a) a degree in electrical engineering or b) a hammer😳
4. Car radio - not worth it. Leave it for a 6 months🙄
