I think it’s fair to say winter has arrived. The tell tale signs are the extra duvet on the bed, the fire on every evening, winter coat out of the cupboard and a general new ruddiness to people’s faces as a they brave the biting chill of the Wellington wind.
But, it’s better than this time last year when we were beset with rain, winds and general all round unhappiness with the weather. Also, snow storms that caused havoc. The snow has arrived in the chilly southland on the South Island and the ski fields are opening for the winter season. Personally I can’t wait until we’re off to the tropics at the end of July.
No doubt that the colder weather brings new topics of conversations. We have the daily competition as to where in Wellington it’s coldest. I feel I won hands down this week as on Monday we were showing 1 degree in Khandallah.
Even if its cold, we need the rain to hold off. Can’t build houses when everthing is wet.
