Summer’s gone

Spring and early summer rain combined with irrigation has allowed us to enjoy the long, sunny summer without the worries of drought afflicting other areas.

But we’ve had a sudden end to the golden weather.

The 8mls of welcome rain on Wednesday night brought a sprinkling of snow to the Kakanui Range and today’s forecast high is only 12 degrees.

Remind me again why daylight saving extends this far into autumn?

    I have been enjoying the warm evenings, sitting on outside tables at various bars in Hamilton.
    But I was up early yesterday for a drive to Auckland and it did not seem right that many Hamiltonians have been driving to work in the dark.
