First big snow since 2008!

“A picture paints a thousand words” they say, so I will keep this brief.

It started snowing late yesterday afternoon. More snow fell during the night…the first big snow since 2008!

This morning at 6am I had to fly to Auckland. After putting chains on and clearing the driveway of fallen trees I just got to the airport on time – only to forget my brief case, meeting papers, glasses, jacket etc! And lost my watch while removing my chains in 5 inches of snow! Ahh, the perils of a snowy morn. Michael's snowy start

We got about 4 inches of snowfall overnight. It’s very wet and melting fast. I expect it will be completely thawed and gone by Sunday/Monday.
