    Default Snow in New Zealand

    This is something we are not used to usually it is only small patches on the ground, and gone before lunchtime. I am surprised to see it staying on the greenhouse as it has a heatpump, so I had better go and have a look. We do not need the cold as the first show is in four weeks

    Brrr! Now that looks cold! Not looking forward to the snow here. I would rather have this terrible heat than all that ice and snow. Stay warm!!

    cheers,

    I does look pretty, but I don't like the idea of it to have it here also in a few months. My vanda's need sun.

    Wow ! I would love to play in that snow. I would rather have snow and bright sunny days than long weeks on end with rains and humid climate, which we have here in Bremen. Finally today I saw some sun LOL

    Hi Ted and others,
    I'm quite tired of these once-in-a-life-time events!!! We have had nothing but them in the past year! First quakes on faults that haven't moved in 10-15000 years until Sept 4, Feb 22 and June 13. Now we are having a snow storm of a century! All of NZ got it this time, not only Christchurch. We have about 15 cm of wet snow on the ground. It seems that even our dogs don't like it anymore as they had to forced out for their evening pee .
