AVERAGE sums up the majority of our weather watcher
reports for February.
In Te Kuiti, Frank Kelly says rainfall for the month was
similar to the start of 2017 at 105mm – 5mm more than Janu-
ary – spread over 10 days.
The biggest fall was 41mm on February 16.
Colin Murphy of Otorohanga recorded 97mm rainfall for
the month. He says although it was a slow start, the middle of
February delivered more rain, with 49mms alone on Febru-
ary 17. And humid conditions also made ideal weather for
Michael Lellman recorded 86.4mm over 16 days with the
biggest fall of 21.6mm on February 16.
“Our 109-year average is 88.5mm, so February was, well,
pretty average. Our driest was back in 1909 with just 5.6mm
and our wettest 315.1mm in 2004. It’s interesting that February
very closely mimics last year’s 82.4mm.”
Ian Clark recorded 118.3mm of rain – saying it was “above
our February average of 88.2mm”.
The biggest fall in one day was 50.5mm on February 16, but
last month’s total was nowhere near the highest.
“Our maximum was 374.1 in February 1958,” he says –
the year of widespread record flooding in the North King
Country. Our minimum was 5.3mm in 1973 and last year we
Mr Clark says February’s average temperature was 20.55deg
C – lower than last year’s 22.4deg C.
NIWA says February was a wet month for some of the North
Island and dry in the south.
Temperatures were fairly normal in the South Island, south
and west of the North Island, but above average for north
and eastern areas. And it was a mixed bag for soil moisture,
while sunshine hours from Te Kuiti to Palmerston North,
were below normal.
WE asked and you voted . . . for the North King Country’s best
beach. And the winner is . . . drum roll please . . . Mokau! For
those who are devotees of this west coast beach it will come as no
surprise. But 11-year-old Lana Roach, who voted for Mokau, was
pleasantly surprised when we called to let her know that she had
won our ‘Best Beach’ competition. The Otorohanga South School
student says she loves the beach and all sports. Congratulations
Lana, we hope you enjoy your summer prize pack from Unichem
Otorohanga and the pair of sunglasses up to a value of $250 from
King Country Optometrists.
Mokau . . . our best beach!

ANZ Bank Te Kuiti staff members will throw some bangers
on the barbie in the name of charity tomorrow.
They will be outside The Warehouse in Rora St manning a
sausage sizzle from 11.30am to 2pm to raise funds for chari-
table trust – Kitty Korner.
Branch manager Courtney Allen says the bank’s staff put
their heads together each year and choose a local charity to
fundraise for. And this year Kitty Korner got the nod.
“We’re all lovers of cats and Kitty Korner does great work
for the community. We try and get out in the community as
much as possible and do what we can.”
Kitty Korner chairwoman Sandra Squier says the timing of
the fundraiser could not be better as the trust recently received
a litter of nine kittens, along with their mother, which were
found under a house.
“ To de-sex them and prepare them for adoption is a huge
expense to us and that is what the money will go towards,”
“ The cost will be about $1200 altogether. That covers their
de-sexing, vaccinating, microchipping and flea and worm
treatment, it doesn’t cover the cost of foster care.
“Just to get money towards that is fabulous, we are very
grateful. After having World Spey Day (February 28) our funds
are low so this is pretty amazing.”
ANZ employees throughout the country are encouraged to
volunteer their skills and time to community groups they have
a passion for. Staff at all of ANZ’s branches are able to donate
one work day each year to help in the community.
On Friday, two Te Kuiti staff members volunteered their
time at the Waitomo Interschool Swimming Sports.
“We helped with a food stall for all the parents, judges and
volunteers,” says Ms Allen. “Everyone at the branch made a
plate up to go towards the day. I believe it’s important to help
as much as we can in our community.”
