I see Rata is flowering at Fox River

The coast south of karamea has missed out on all the rain we have been getting .

These days if it rains in the Nrth IS we are in the Nrth Is .

If it rains in the Sth Is we are in the Sth Is .

Nov heading to be the wettest month since we got our weather station in 2014.

Over 300mls .

I think it will delay buds rata buds opening .
