The family arrived and after a few drinks and a swim (hot pool) the kids settled down to their technology, we watched some women's rugby (NZ Black Ferns v Aust) and the big kids took to arm wrestling. Then the drums got a hammering... so a good evening.
We have seen Nelson devastated over the past week with massive flooding, slips and evacuations. In my early 20's I recall a similar storm in Nelson (We came from there and went back annually for holidays)
I found a story in the Nelson Photo News from September 1970. Its worth a read. The photo was taken about 20 meters from my aunty and uncles house in Seymour Ave. The story linked here

A wet day so we got in the car and went to the marina, the harbour bridge and the memorial park playground.
I had some explaining to do for Jay on this one. These guys should design T-Shirts or better still Speights ads....yeah right....
