Drought started early this year; by mid-November, parts of Nelson/Tasman regions were facing water restrictions. So it's nice to have a bit of moisture.
I was looking out Sue's gallery window yesterday afternoon because I was a wee bit worried about getting flooded. See the ripples on the lower right? The bridge is over Maitai River on Collingwood Street; right behind the parking spaces is the Maitai. But we were ok; by afternoon there were kayakers having a great time right in front of the gallery. That's downtown Nelson for you.
This one is for Emilia and her family in Finland. It's dry today, by the way.
