It's been wall to wall sunshine for weeks now with temps in the high teens. Today they dropped dramatically to 11 deg when we woke up ,rising to 17 deg by lunch time. warm enough to sunbathe for some.

Yeah. It really isn't that cold for here, even so. We got a couple of inches of snow on Saturday.

Hovering just around the seasonal average, which is OK in itself but we weren't supposed to get as much snow as we did. I was all ready for a dusting and we ended up with 2".

All I ask is that we don't have to deal with that freaking polar vortex thing.

I don't think that's on the cards just yet. If we make it to February without one, we'll probably be OK.

All I ask is that it never snows again for the rest of my life.

I was going to say you're very lucky but something makes me think everything's really expensive in New Zealand so I'm not sure if you are after all ...

Nothing really, at the moment.

More snow on Saturday, maybe 6 inches or so.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for a huge shift in wind direction. They did, at least, drop the predicted totals this morning in the forecast, maybe we'll luck out and not even get that much.

We get a long weekend, too, thanks to MLK on Monday, so I could avoid tramping through the oily slush on the way to work.

Nice for you, I don't get that one. At least there'll be no school traffic in the morning, I suppose.

Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice but we had the most wonderful orange sky this evening.
