LOL News

TODAY, TOMORROW, TIMARU

Timaru looked set to become New Zealand’s own sunshine state last Wednesday following an error on MetService’s website.

The typo, which must have had a few residents hot under the collar, indicated that the South Island town would experience a sweltering high of 89°C.

MetService media and communications meteorologist Daniel Corbett quickly ensured the website was corrected to the real high—a mere 9°C.

‘‘Eighty-nine deg C is not quite right. [If it was] we’d be going ‘oh my gosh’.’’

No we wouldn’t, Daniel, because if it were that hot, we’d probably be dead.

Lol.

THE CAT CAME BACK!

A Christchurch cat really landed on its feet last weekend after narrowly escaping death in a house fire.

Fire fighters called to the scene managed to rescue and resuscitate the cat from the burning house, which was otherwise unoccupied.

Salient was unable to confirm whether resuscitation had been achieved through meowth-to-meowth.
