Winter has arrived.

There was snow on top of the hill (at less than 300m).

Oh, wow! Not missing snow. Love the picture though.

Do you find the obsession with snow at so-many-metres a bit strange?

back in the UK it was snow or no snow ... usually no snow... and I rarely recall discussion about elevation except when they occasionally said... "Perhaps moderate accumulations over the hills."

LOL. I think the obsession with snow and meters goes along with pretending there is no winter in NZ. There's snow on the hill, but I'm not wearing any shoes!

I get so excited by snow on the hills - a little more and a little closer would make for some real fun. As I drove along the South Coast road with my youngest daughter today she asked, 'Mummy, can we go sledging on the Kaikouras?' - They may look close - in her eyes - but erm, it was quite a geography lesson explaining the logistics involved in getting there. Perhaps a weekend up Mt Ruapehu is called for before the season is out!
