    Thumbs down ChCh Weather...Is It This Bad?

    Got this on my Google Desktop just now:

    Weather for Christchurch, NZ

    39°F/3.89ºC
    Cloudy (but in Britain, that would be "Sunny Day")
    Wind: N at 7 mph/12 kph (I think N is S in Upsidedown Land though)
    Humidity: 100%/xx% (is there a metric equiv? I can't find it)

    Youse guys gonna have an early Winter?

    Where's all this global warming?

    Don't youse get any?

    Thats pretty normal - maybe the humidity would be a bit high.

    May temps for NZ were the coldest for a long time - average temps of about not much.

    If I find the stats I'll give you a link - can't remember where I saw it.

    Joe: Christchurch has a very hot and, usually fairly dry, summer, but if you have any sense, you move to warmer climes in the winter.

    Their summers are worth a visit, but I have experienced beautifully clear winter days that even brass monkeys avoid! There is a fairly small hill called "The Port Hills" which is occasionally dusted with snow. It only requires a slight breeze blowing in your direction to send the brass monkeys scattering!

    The natives will tell you it's "bracing." Foreigners call it bloody freezing!

    There are many days in a Christchurch winter day where the thermometer just seems to be stuck! I have heard it said that the thermometer freezes which may explain why it just refuses to rise.

    Christchurch has it's famous nor-wester. It's a wind that blows across the plains and by the time it reaches Christchurch there is no moisture left but it has picked up plenty of warmth. Lovely weather for the tourists, but notice how they stay away as winter approaches.

    I would suggest looking at the temperatures for Kaitaia, which is near the top of the North Island. It will make you feel much warmer. The natives there, fire up when the temperature drops below 15C.

    There are places in NZ where they have not heard of global warming. The Christchurch natives have their brains numbed by the cold at this time of year so they may not be aware.

    I'd rather be cold than hot any day. It's always easier to rug up than it is to cool yourself down when its 30+ deg in the summer. Any you get to ski! She's all good!

    I do believe that Nelson has almost as many days of sunshine as we in Napier have!!
