Wellington, and much of New Zealand in fact, have decided that the rain and winds are too much tonight and not only the midnight fireworks but all outdoor festivities have been cancelled and shut down for the evening. Talk about a major disappointment. I was looking forward to being in a fairly major city for New Years fireworks, and being the first in the world to ring in 2012. Boo. I’ll have to do next year in Sydney or something. Well, assuming the world doesn’t end sometime next year.
