Clyde Dam

This dam is about 10 minutes drive from where I live. I decided to make a posting
about it because you must need a break from Autumn leaves and I thought that a million tons of concrete might help.

Built between 1977 and 1989 this is New Zealand's third largest hydro power station. Controversial, it eventually cost three times the original estimate.

This power station emits a low hum, It seems alive.

Those of you who live in Auckland need to be grateful for the existence of this dam. When winter comes and you turn on your heater, it could be this cold water that is keeping you warm.
