Nasty Low Pressure

Today was a bit of a brief storm, (some say it was just a strong breeze), but having 60-70knots at Tiri on the nowcasting I would certainly say it was a storm!

We had 45.6 knots over our deck today, and honestly while on Skype to Craig, I think he was more worried than we were as all he could see was us swaying from side to side as the boat was moving around with all the wave action!

I took a photo during the 'peak' wind and then 45 minutes later, when the sky turned an amazing colour and the wind died right out, leaving a calm evening to enjoy.


Crazy Auckland!


  1. Are you trying to say that the last photo is not photoshoped or otherwise post porcessed? ;-)

  2. It certainly is a true picture. I was Skyping a friend over the other side of the bridge who was AMAZED at the sky, it was so unexpected, and so random, so we both raced outside and took photos! it was very 'airy'...
