Don't be silly, Zeborah, say the sceptics. What does global warming have to do with the gallons of rain pouring down on the country, closing roads everywhere except in Stewart Island, causing power outages, and necessitating evacuations?
Well, that too. But no, my discovery is subtly different. You see, I finally went to clear my mailbox today, which I hadn't cleared since before this rain started a few days ago. I found two Stars, a Christchurch Mail, a bunch of soggy fliers, and, right above the wistful real estate agent's flier, so soggy I had to scratch it off the bottom of the mailbox, was a car-shaped card labelled, "half price megawash at BP Connect Edgeware".
Oh you fools. You poor poor fools. I understand those sceptical of global warming, but never, ever underestimate the power of Murphy's Law.
