I’m supposed to be flying to Christchurch tomorrow for a meeting in Wellington on Wednesday.
The heavy rain and state of the roads prompted me to start the journey today but I’m going nowhere.
I’d checked the internet before starting and thought I had a passable route. But 10 minutes into my journey a radio update informed me that road was closed.
North Otago is cut off by road closures to the north, west and south.
Our usual route to town is also closed and while the alternative is okay for now I took the precaution of stocking up on groceries before I came home.
Whatever the weather brings in the next few days we won’t be going hungry.
