It was pouring when I left Wanaka yesterday.
It continued to pour through the Lindis Pass and was still raining when I got to Omarama.
Going up the Otematata Saddle it was only drizzling and on the other side it was dry.
Today started warm and fine but clouds rolled in this afternoon and at last it started to rain.
Until today we’d had only 45 mls of rain, this afternoon we got another 5.
The rain has stopped for now but I”m very grateful for what we got today.
