The clocks don’t go forward until 2am tomorrow but already the weather is proving it’s too early.
Yesterday we had a nor-west spring day with temperatures around 20 degrees, but today it’s less than 10 and it’s raining.
No Peter Dunne I will not appreciate another hour of darkness a week earlier than it used to be. I’m grumpy already and that’s before I lose an hour’s sleep tonight and have to get up in the pre-dawn chill. Mutter mumble.
Tumeke! suggests two time zones with the North Island clocks going forwards a few weeks before those in the South.
But I’ve got a better idea, why don’t the people in the north be like the birds and fly south for the summer – it’ll be light until around 10pm here in late December.
Update: One of our men just called in to say he’d stopped working a paddock on a hill block at Waianakaru because it’s snowing!
