^^^ Yeah, it was gingerly at first, thinking hopefully I wont fall cuz people will call me stupid for doing this....

...and I haven't fallen yet :D

It was weird, I had push, but no pull...I could put my palms on the counter and lift my weight no problem, but I couldn't lift a razor to shave.

...Now things are pretty good, more to go but 90% functional.

^^^^^ Good news! sounds like you're bouncing back nicely ^^^^^

Back in '94 I was given a bicycle for my birthday, and decided to ride the thing
a couple of k's to the local bike shop to pick-up some accessories, including a helmet
that was newly required by law for the bicyclist. It had probably been 20 odd years since
I had bicycled in anger. I sped down our steep street, negotiated the pedestrian zig zag path
with ease, "just like riding a bike, you never forget" ho ho ho, I think I even popped a wheelie
or two, I was just coming up this little jump from the walk way to the footpath along the Helston Road
bridge when I hit a miniscule patch of gravel, lost the front and went over the bars landing in an undignified heap
on the footpath in full view of a passing community police car :oops:

Officer Dibble picked me up and dusted me off, said I was old enough (35) to know better,
then, like I was a kid, insisted on driving me and the bike the rest of the way to the shop,
for my own safety.....Oh how they laughed down in the police canteen at lunch time.....

By the old rules, it's officially Autumn here now.....

OUCH!

When I was maybe 6 or 7 my 1st bike was in sever disrepair and locked away in the shed so I couldn't
get my little hands on it.....Naturally, after my father went to work, I removed the screws from
the shed door releasing the bike and riding it to school wearing a plastic policeman's helmet as
protection from the rain. About a minute from school, racing with Nigel Webster and John House,
my helmet slipped forward, blocked my vision and I bounced off the back of an angle parked blue
Austin A40 Devon, I hit the road and John House rode over my outstretched arm.....
Dislocated elbow and a decent gash on the head.....
School sick bay.....
The first of many trips with my father off work in a taxi to the hospital.....
15 stitches and a plaster cast.....
Prohibited from riding until I could shave, or pay back the sixty two pounds three shillings
and sixpence for the taxi and his time off work.....
Shed converted to Fort Knox and remained impregnable for many years.....

Possible thunderstorms and cooler autumn temperatures
set to arrive just in time for the school holidays

Georgia Forrester
11:08, 17th of April, 2021.

Some parts of the country will drop down to 3°C (37.4°F) overnight on Saturday as cooler autumn temperatures arrive, Met Service advises.

No new temperature records are expected to be broken, but meteorologist Tom Adams​ says some
light frosts are on the cards for sheltered areas on Saturday evening, while thunderstorms are also
possible in the North Island during the day.

The first weekend of the school holidays is expected to bring a mixed bag of sunshine and a splattering
of rain as a series of fronts moves up the country.

Adams says some eastern and central areas of the North Island, including Gisborne, will see rain on
Saturday, possibly heavy at times, however this was expected to ease by the evening.

Cooler overnight temperatures and light frosts are expected for the first weekend of the school holidays.

On Saturday, there’s also moderate risk of thunderstorms for south Taranaki, Whanganui,
northern Manawatū and the Central Plateau. Any thunderstorms that occur are likely to bring
localised heavy rain of 10mm to 20mm, and possibly small hail.

In the far south, a cold front is expected to bring a low risk of thunderstorms to far southern Fiordland
and Stewart Island during the evening.

In the main centres, those in Auckland can expect some showers, possibly heavy at times, which will
gradually clear throughout the day. A high of 19°C (66.2°F) and a low of 13°C (55.4°F) is forecast.

n Wellington, a cloudy day with a few showers is forecast but should clear by the afternoon.
A high of 16°C (60.8°F) and a low of 9°C (48.2°F) is predicted.

In Christchurch, morning showers will clear into a fine day, with south westerlies dying out this evening.
A high of 14°C (57.2°F) and a low of 3°C (37.4°F) is expected.

Those in Dunedin are in store for a mostly fine day, with south westerlies turning northerly in the afternoon.
A high of 15°C (59.0°F) and a low of 9°C (48.2°F) is forecast.

Adams says the coolest overnight temperatures will be recorded in Masterton, at Christchurch airport,
Timaru, Taumarunui and Alexandra with all areas expected to fall to 3°C (37.4°F).
Sheltered valley areas could also see some light frosts.

Queenstown and Wanaka will fall to 6°C (42.8°F) overnight, and Mt Cook would fall to 5°C (41.0°F).

Sunday however was expected to be “a nice day for most of the country,” Adams says.

Looking ahead to the rest of the week, Monday is also expected to be mostly fine. However, from Tuesday
a low pressure system is expected to bring wet weather to the top of the North Island, before moving south.

Adams says at this time of year the autumn weather can change often, and advised parents with children
at home these school holidays to keep the weather forecast in mind when making plans.

It's been a great preview of summer, I travelled 1000m/1600k south to Atlanta for training where the weather has been 80f/26c to 88f/31c every day. Because covid they urged us to drive (crazy good overtime), not fly. I was so far I could have flown but I drove with my bicycle to soak up the summer sun every day after work, and went on a pretty cool bike hike last weekend. I get one more ride this morning before I start the 2 day trek home, but it's warmed up a lot at home over the last ~ 3 weeks, (lol, I'll probably have sheep and goats moved in to my overgrown lawn when I get home...I'll look on the bright side, it'll be easy to get laid!).

There is an awesome bike/jogging trail here that used to be a railroad line that goes up into the mountains 61m/100k west from Atlanta to the Alabama border. Since it was a railroad, it cant go up and down steep hills so they cut V's through the peaks or tunneled through the peaks when they were too high to cut - and they filled in the valleys between the peaks...the result is a slight, maybe 3 degree constant incline heading west. The thing to do is park the car and ride uphill west for as long as you want, then turn around and practically coast back, a 25 mile ride doubles to 50)...you have to pedal a little but coming back is very easy :)

Image

Image
^^^This one has both sides cut cliffs going into a tunnel :)

Image

Image
Ghouls gotta ride too :)

Image
^^^This is the end of the line at the Georgia/Alabama line...the trail continues into Alabama but it's called something else and I don't know how far it goes...perhaps another trip...

Image
^^^I don't know what the fuck this thing is, but I brought some seeds home to plant outside and see what it looks like before it goes to seed :)

Image
^^^I made a "frame" by shooting through a fence.

One for my daughter who got me this shark cup :)
This could be my last trip after 40 years of technician training classes so it's nostalgic, a lot good times. This press is a "series 4 Indigo and there is a series 5 going in near me in Rhode Island soon, so I MIGHT get one more training cruise before I retire.

'Weather bomb' to bring strong winds and heavy rain
to parts of the North Island

Nadine Porter
12:13pm, 23rd of May, 2021.

A low is currently brewing in subtropical water north of New Zealand, and will have a glancing blow
on the North Island this weekend.
Strong wind and heavy rain warnings are in place for the eastern coast and upper parts of North Island
in coming days.

North of Gisborne should expect 100 millimetres [3.9 inches] to 160 millimetres [6.2 inches]
of rain in the 24 hours from 11am on Sunday, especially about the ranges, according to
Met Service meteorologist Tom Adams.

Heavy rain is forecast over the entire region.

The national weather authority has warned the rain may cause streams and rivers to rise rapidly,
saying surface flooding and slips were also possible and driving conditions in the area could be
hazardous.

A low-pressure system developing northeast of New Zealand is responsible for the heavy rain
expected and will also cause strong gusts and combined waves of between 5 metres [16.4 feet]
and 7 metres [22.9 feet] in parts of the North Island in coming days.

The low’s centre would not make it to land, Adams, said but it would impact the weather.

Image
ROSA WOODS/STUFF
Big waves are expected in Gisborne and Northland because of a low pressure weather bomb.

Between 1pm Sunday and 2am on Tuesday the eastern Bay of Plenty east of Opotiki and Gisborne
region north of Ruatoria can expect strong wind gusts of up to 120 kilometres [74.5 mph] that
could damage trees, powerlines and unsecured structure.

Met Service has warned driving may be hazardous especially for high-sided vehicles and motorcycles.

“Arguably the wind will affect New Zealand more than the heavy rain,” Adams said.

Met Service was already receiving reports of big swells in Northland with waves expected to reach
7 metres [22.9 feet] in the area, while Gisborne residents could expect waves of up to 5 metres
[16.4 feet].

Adams said the “weather bomb” would be around for much of the week.

“It’s a long running system so it would pay to keep an eye on the forecasts.”

Act now': Met Service's red warning predicts most significant rainfall
in a decade for Canterbury

Michael Daly
12:33, May 29th, 2021.

The country is in for a stormy weekend, with Met Service issuing a rare red severe weather warning for Canterbury, which could be facing its most significant rainfall event in a decade.

Red warnings are reserved for only the most extreme weather events, and there has been only one other such warning since the colour-coded system was introduced in mid-2019. The first was in February 2020 for a massive rainfall event on the southern West Coast that trapped 1000 people in Milford Sound.

“It signifies that people need to act now as immediate action is required to protect people, animals and property from the impact of the weather. People should also be prepared to follow the advice of official authorities and emergency services,” Met Service communications meteorologist Lisa Murray said.

Dangerous river conditions and flooding were expected in Canterbury, with slips and floodwaters likely to disrupt travel, making some roads impassable and possibly isolating communities, Met Service said on Saturday.

Rain is expected across the country, and there’s likely to be heavy snow and thunderstorms in some areas, while Met Service is also concerned about the possibility of coastal flooding in Auckland, Bay of Plenty and Canterbury as king tides combine with a large swell.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency has told motorists in Canterbury to be prepared for disruptions on the road network, with the most significant rainfall in 10 years predicted for the region.

A screen grab from the Met Service website shows the red heavy rain warning area for the South Island.

Forecast rainfall had the potential to cause widespread flooding, land instability and for some rivers to break flood banks, NZTA senior maintenance and operations manager Wayne Oldfield said.

Preparations were in place if rainfall reached predicted levels. “People should plan ahead by checking the forecast before heading out, and keeping an eye on our website and social media for updates and road closures.”

In Bay of Plenty, Coromandel Peninsula, Auckland and Northland motorists were advised to watch out for storm surges and surface flooding as heavy swells coincide with king tides.

Met Service’s heavy rain severe weather red warning covers Canterbury south of Amberley from 3pm Saturday to 11am Monday. Up to 300mm could fall during that time in the Canterbury High Country and foothills, with up to 120mm on the plains and at the coast.

Heavy snow could also fall as low as 1000 metres in Canterbury, and south to southeasterly winds could approach severe gale strength in exposed places on the plains and at the coast from Sunday afternoon into the night.

There’s a more usual orange heavy rain warning for Nelson west of Motueka for the 18 hours through to 3am Sunday, and for eastern areas between Amberley and Kaikōura for the 48 hours from 3pm Saturday.]

Heavy rain is also possible elsewhere in the east of the South Island, with a heavy rain for watch for Marlborough between Ward and Kaikōura through to 11pm Saturday, the Richmond Range through to 9pm Saturday, and for North Otago and Dunedin from Sunday afternoon until early Monday.

In the North Island, heavy rain is possible for Bay of Plenty east of Whakatāne through to 3am Sunday, and for Taranaki about and north of the mountain through to 6pm Saturday.

There’s a chance of thunderstorms for many parts of the North Island and the top of the South Island on Saturday.

Hail up to 15mm in diameter was possible during any thunderstorms for Northland, thhti Auckland, and in the west down to north Taranaki, Met Service said. Small tornadoes were also possible and winds could gust to 90kmh (55.9 mph).

Gusts to 90kmh (55.9 mph) were also possible during thunderstorms for Coromandel Peninsula and coastal Bay of Plenty, along with small hail. Small tornadoes were possible on Coromandel Peninsula.

The significant rainfall is being brought to Canterbury by a complex low pressure system expected to move slowly southeast across northern and central New Zealand during the weekend. It was expected to direct a strong and moist southeast flow across the South Island that would bring the rain.

An associated front was forecast to move eastwards across northern and central New Zealand on Saturday, Met Service said. It was expected to bring a relatively short burst of heavy rain to some areas.

Another front was forecast to move onto Otago from the east during Sunday, delivering a period of possibly heavy rain to Dunedin and North Otago.

In Westland south of Hokitika, and in Fiordland southeasterly gales could gust to 120km/h (74.5 mph)
at times from Saturday afternoon until Monday morning.

Severe gales expected for Far North, heavy rain for Northland and Coromandel

Jonathan Guildford
11:35, June 06th, 2021.

Heavy rain is expected for the top of the South Island, Northland and the Coromandel while severe gales could whip through parts of the Far North as a front makes its way up the country.

Met Service meteorologist Andrew James said a “broad frontal system” lying over the South Island, which was preceded by strong northerly winds, was moving slowly north on Sunday, triggering several heavy rain warnings and strong wind watches.

A low front was then expected to affect the upper North Island and potentially parts of the upper South Island and Canterbury late Sunday and into Monday.

Heavy rain is expected for the West Coast, Northland and the Coromandel while severe gales could whip through parts of the Far North as a front makes its way up the country throughout Sunday and Monday.
“It’s looking like generally a couple of wet days for the country and for Canterbury, the main effects will be felt on [Monday].”

Heavy rain warnings were in force for Northland, the Coromandel Peninsula and the ranges of Nelson west of Motueka.

The ranges of Nelson west of Motueka were expected to get a further 50mm to 70mm of rain to accumulate on top of what has already fallen with peak rates of 10mm to 15mm an hour.

Northland was forecast to get periods of heavy rain that could reach warning criteria until 1pm on Monday. About 100mm to 150mm of rain was expected, especially in the north and about the eastern hills, with peak rates of 15mm to 25mm an hour, and possible thunderstorms.

Periods of heavy rain was also forecast for the Coromandel Peninsula between 6am Monday and 9am Tuesday with about 110mm to 150mm of rain expected about the hills, and 70mm to 100mm near the coast with peak rates of 10mm an hour. Showers were expected in the area on Tuesday after the end of the warning period.

The ranges of Nelson west of Motueka was expecting a further 50mm to 70mm of rain to accumulate on top of what has already fallen between 10am and 8pm on Sunday.

Heavy rain watches were also in force for the hell hole that is Auckland, Buller and Westland from Otira northwards and the Richmond Range including Rai Valley.

thhti Auckland from Albany northwards, including Great Barrier Island, from 11pm Sunday to 1pm Monday could expect periods of heavy rain potentially approaching warning criteria. The same for Buller and Westland from Otira northwards from 10am to 5pm Sunday and the Richmond Range including Rai Valley during that same period.

Parts of the Far North could also expect strong winds throughout the weekend.

Met Service upgraded an initial strong wind watch to a warning for the Northland region on Sunday morning. From 6pm Sunday until 10am Monday, east to northeast gales were forecast to be severe at times with gusts potentially reaching 120kmh.

Those in the area were being urged to take extra care as the strong winds could damage trees, power lines and unsecured structures, potentially making driving hazardous, especially for high-sided vehicles and motorcycles.

A strong wind watch was also in place for the Coromandel Peninsula from 3am Monday to 11am Tuesday with east to northeast winds forecast to approach severe gale in exposed places at times. The same watch was in place for thhti Auckland between 11pm Sunday and 11pm Monday.

An update from Met Service on any potential severe weather was expected at 9pm on Sunday.

“With so many moving parts to this system, there’s some uncertainty with what exact impacts will be, so it's the kind of situation where people should keep up to date with the forecasts,” James said.

Mark Quinlivan, Lydia Lewis 11 hours ago

Snow has fallen in the south and north overnight and motorists are being warned of more treacherous weather conditions, as a freezing winter blast makes its way from the Antarctic Ice Shelf.

Some flights have been cancelled at Queenstown, Dunedin and Invercargill Airports, and the Interislander ferry has canned all sailings across the Cook Strait with the massive swells expected to hit Wellington's coast.

Bluebridge is also throwing caution to the wind, cancelling sailings for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Those living near Wellington's coast are being asked to find alternative accommodation with the massive swells expected on Tuesday.

The full impact is due to push through on Tuesday evening with six-metre waves, Met Service says.

Wellington Civil Defence says packing a bag with supplies is advised for people living near the coast, should things quickly take a turn for the worse.

"Updated modelling shows that the impacts from this event could be similar to the wave inundation that was experienced during the 2013 Matariki Storm," the Wellington region emergency management office said in a statement.

"People living close to swell and surf exposed coastlines should be prepared for the likely possibility of wave overtopping and flooding of roads, potential damage to property, deposition of debris, and driftwood, sand and gravel making access difficult or dangerous and possible road closures.

"If your home has been impacted by past swell and storm events or [you] have concerns, arrange accommodation with friends and family from Tuesday late afternoon to Wednesday afternoon."

There's also been a significant amount of snowfall around the central North and South Islands overnight with more expected throughout the day.

Road snow warnings are in place for Napier-Taupō, Desert, and Remutaka Hill Rds in the north, and the Lindis Pass, State Highway 1 between Dunedin and Waitati, and the Crown Range and Milford Rds in the south.

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) said on Monday night the road was closed between Dunedin and Waitati.

"Please delay your journey, as there is no detour available," Waka Kotahi NZTA said in a statement. "An update will be provided when the road status has changed."

Heavy snow watches are in place for Southland, Fiordland, the Canterbury Plains, the Tararua Range and Taihape, and strong wind watches have been issued for Fiordland, north Otago, Dunedin and Clutha, coastal Hawke's Bay, Wellington and the Marlborough Sounds.
