    Farken weather

    Was ment to be watching the US v NZ Sprint cars at the Palmy speedway tonight, Had the best day weather wise in the Manawatu today for the pass 4 weeks ( was hot,n,sunny ) & then it decided to turn into a 15min thunder storm @ about 5pm
    A mob of us ( including my bro & kids which had driven 1 1/2 hours to get here ) rocked on down to the track about 6:30 & it was a little on the mucky side
    , they had some 4x4's trying to dry it out & after 45mins of waiting they decided to "can" the meet

    Only had 1.2mm (according to my gauge ) & it never rained again, What a cunt farken weather :mad:

    On the bright side I had the new site to entertain me when I got home ( seems some clouds have silver linings aye ) & Im getting some posts in before Kiwi G gets his sticky beak in here

    It started raining here about 1700, hasn't stopped yet, haven't checked the rain gauge but the road down to the plant is under about 4 inches and there's constant lightning. The wet season is the best part of the year here.

    Maybe when you get 4 free days you can get off yer arse and mow them yourself. Better still round up all your pups and make it a family day

    Bloody hot up here today, spent 3 hours with the dogs walking down the middle of a river
    If its guns, tits or tyres it's going to cost you lots of money
