There was widespread flooding in Lower Hutt on Saturday night.
Coming home from work at 11pm, the taxi driver swerved to avoid a puddle (lake!) that took up the entire left hand side of the road.
So as soon as I got home I did what any sane person would do ... I put on my hooded jacket, grabbed my keys and camera, and ran through the lake in my canvas converse.
I dripped back home, euphoric.
