Where is summer #2?

We woke to views of fresh snow on the mountains around Wanaka yesterday – enough to hide the black stripe of the avalanche trail on Fog Peak.

The day improved a little here but it was chilly at the on-farm lamb sale near Roxburgh and only 7 degrees when we stopped in the town for lunch.

Road side stalls are full of stone fruit. It looks okay but the lack of heat means the cherries, apricots and peaches lack the intense flavour which normally characterises sun-ripened Central Otago fruit.

    Three years ago we drove out of Hanmer Springs at 10am on New Year’s Day. The temperature on the car’s climate system was 4*, and the mountains around the town were coated with fresh snow. I guess that’s Global Warming for you 🙂

    I have spent part of my holidays in your region. The temperatures were disappointing for a summer seasoning. The Global Warming industry becomes less tenable and more despicable by the hour!

  3. It’s quite nippy in Napier today.
