    Default South Island Snow

    You have no secrets on the internet.
    Be careful and vigilant. The internet should be considered like roads, avoiding an incident is better than trying to survive one.

    Wow !! Took me ages to load that pic on my crippled connection but it was well worth it. Can see exactly how much of the South Island got a dumping - far more than I thought.

    Brrrrrrrr !!

    We have never had a storm like that before in the 33 years I have been here.

    In-laws still under a foot of snow down in South Canty and no immediate prospect of power as all the power poles have been snapped as well as the lines down. Translate that to One Auckland News speak - they haven't had a latte for quite a while, and the Chardonnay is looking a bit on the chilly side.

    Its occurred to me with the popularity of heat pumps instead of woodburners, that some people may be having a real problem.

    The South Island power situation is turning into a real crisis with houses still not having power or water today and in some cases under advice they won't have it for three weeks. This has got well past the point of going without a latte for five minutes but doesn't seem to be getting quite the news coverage.
