Flipped onto TV One tonight for some weather info, not for what they say but the satellite images and the Isobar map are a bit of a guide.
The blonde 'bimbo' announced;
"relief for farmers' with 250 mm of rain predicted for Fiordland.
Jesus wept, there are no bloody farms or farmers in Fiordland it is a "NATIONAL PARK".
There are a few in adjacent South Westland and Western Southland but as far as I am aware they are not in the throes of a pending drought.
On the other hand I understand parts of The Wairarapa and Hawkes Bay are in need of rain, and for your information, you pretty, slender airhead, those areas are quite a distance to the North East and in the other freekin Island.
