WPC: A Stormy Morning in Hastings, NZ

A Stormy Morning 037@0,1x

Good morning from a very stormy Hastings day.  This is the view I see when I sit at my desk this morning.  We are very cold, very windy and very wet.  So it is rather appropriate with this morning’s prompt from The Daily Post’s .

Imagine your typical morning. You might picture your favorite coffee mug. A streak of sunlight coming through your bedroom window. Or the roosters in your backyard that sound off at 5 am.

Or how about a snapshot of a once-in-a-lifetime morning, like a panorama of snowy mountaintops you’ve taken during a trek in the Patagonian Andes? Or a photo from breakfast of a pastéis de nata, a delicious Portuguese egg tart pastry, while on holiday in Lisbon?

There are countless ways we can start our days.

My mornings always start the same way.  Everyday.

Sitting at my messy desk when I read the local online newspapers and do my blog.  My parents gave me another TV, so I have hooked up my one to my computer so that I can actually read.  And have a better view of my photos.  It is just as good as another monitor.

I did try and venture out the door to take some photos of the storm.  But it was too cold, wet and windy to take more than one step out.  Apparently we are to have snow down to 200 metres today.  Many of the roads are closed due to snow.  We have been lucky so far this winter.  But this storm is really making up for it.

To add to the morning theme.  I always write ‘Good morning from a Hastings day’ as we are the first country to greet the new day.  So theoretically I live in the future.  So it is my way of greeting the new day.

  1. I love that…you live in the future. For some reason I was surprised by your view. I don’t know why but I thought you might live in more of an urban setting. It’s as if all of our neighborhoods could be swapped with each other and we wouldn’t notice. LOL Hope the snow melts soon. Love your pictures.


    1. We had nearly 3 feet of rain in 24 hours. I could quite happily give you some of that. It was blizzard conditions on the ranges to the west of us with road closures as well. Not to mention some very long power cuts. I have never seen such storm conditions as this here in New Zealand
