Apparently it’s unusual for the kiwis to have this much snow.
Wanganui residents woke to a whiteout this morning as the region was blanketed by snow.
The fall came as a bitterly cold southerly blast brought snow to much of New Zealand, closing roads, some airports and cutting power to thousands.
Snow has made roads impassable in many parts of both islands.
Snow has also fallen in many parts of the North Island including in and around Wellington. Many hill roads around the capital were closed this morning, including the Rimutaka Hill Road. The Desert Road and the alternate route through National Park in the central North Island were also closed.
That explains why Mark Stevens has been so quiet. He’s been out playing in the snow, making a snow man-kangaroo.
[I know, I know, mark lives in Australia, but it’s the same thing isn’t it].
