Shelter from the Storm

I thought I escaped Cyclone Lusi when I left Auckland in horizontal rain. Well it caught up with me. The severe weather warning did not. Now I am stuck for hours in a building that normally has a panoramic view on Wellington. All I see now is a Wall of Grey. There is glass all around me: Torrential rains pummel it, severe winds push it.

In the morning everything looked fine.

N-14-58

N-14-123

People enjoyed the Cafes …

N-14-63

… the Arts …

N-14-73

… and the sun.

N-14-74

Then the sky turned grey …

N-14-90

N-14-111

N-14-110

… with an occasional downpour.

N-14-121

I did not heed the signs. It is night now, and I still have a great view on the storm while I write these words.
