The weather outside was frightful... But Kiwis made the most of early-Autumn rain.

Some people who ventured outdoors during the heavy rainfall over the weekend found the deluge had created some theme park-level water features.

Mean bombs

Kids in Maungawhau made the most of some surface flooding by doing some mean bombs off a chilly bin.

Look how happy these people are!

Too far?!

Maybe it seemed like a good idea at the time, but most people are unimpressed by this man's antics.

Abseiling into a catchment area of the Nihotipu dam during flooding isn't the best move. Jumping on to a ring and floating down surging dam waters isn't any better. One Facebook user referred to this guy as a w****r... You be the judge.

Old mate heads downstream

Rather than battle wet weather traffic, these jokers got the old kayak out. Nothing like a bit of Kiwi ingenuity to help when dealing with rush hour.
