Now we’ve got hail

The snow I posted on yesterday didn’t last long. By lunchtime the sun was making appearances between clouds and if you could escape the icy wind it was almost warm.

We biked out to Albert Town, up the track beside the Clutha River and back along the  Wanaka lakeside without risking exposure.

It was 5 degrees when we started up Mount Iron this morning, which isn’t too bad if you’re wearing merino and trying to walk fast* up hill. However, the temperature has dropped since then and now it’s hailing.

I hope the lambs which are getting a cold introduction to the world have good shelter.

*fast is a relative term, some days the hill is steeper and today was one of them.
