... arrive with solid rain and cold. Not to be deterred straight into town to stock up with supplies and check things out - what are raincoats for if not to keep the rain off.

There's even women that must be in their 80's with bikini bottom wedgies to tan their bums!! I almost think that would make the news in NZ!
