#Auckland #PowerOutage #Storm

After 3 days without power, it was restored today afternoon. Hats off to the crews working during storm and rain.

This is the worst power outage both of us have ever been through and we don’t consider ourselves young anymore (just to give you an idea of years lived in 3 continents by each of us).

This storm must have been a fierce one. Now gearing up for the next storm arriving tonight. ⛈ī¸đŸŒ€đŸŒŠī¸

It appears @Auckland still has to go through its due share of problems this year.

Here is how I was welcomed to the city on my way to home from the airport tonight –

Thanks to strong storms, there is still power outage in quarter of the city and at peak, more than 200,000 properties were left without power and it is not getting better anytime soon.

Not looking forward to the dark times but is there a choice? ⛈ī¸đŸŒ€đŸŒŠī¸

Just when a cold summer filled with cyclones was not enough, there are 2 strong storms lined up all the the way till this weekend.

Flights are already getting delayed and mine is delayed by 1 hour this evening @Auckland Airport ⛈ī¸đŸŒ€đŸŒŠī¸


It wasn’t too late in the new year to get our very first storm with warnings from Met Services to stay home. It was pouring for two days making things standstill, and so did the plan for rest of 2017 shut down holidays.

Good thing about the rains is that they make hot meals taste much better and pakodas with tea are to die for at such times.
