Well the storm's blown over after a wild night.
Today is warmer and might turn out nice and fine.
The storm has buggered off to Auckland to give them a drenching. I hope that The Old Girl doesn't get a bad flight from Napier today.
I'm going to the local hall this afternoon to listen to The Manaia Singers and The Incredibells - a five octave bell band (they don't come up with band names like that anymore).
Now this won't exactly be my kind of music but it's for a good cause raising funds for the hospice.
Still it could be worse. I could be one of Richard's neighbours having to listen to him practising endless scales on his violin and double bass all day:
"Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques
Sonnez le matines, sonnez le matines
Ding ding dong, ding ding dong"
