It was too hot to sit outside for brunch with my brother and his family in Townsville yesterday.
The temperature was mid 20s at the airport there early afternoon.
It was down to 18 in Brisbane a couple of hours later and zero when we landed in Christchurch just before midnight.
I’d taken the precaution of wearing a couple of layers of merino but it was still a shock to the system.
Meanwhile back on the farm, my farmer reports it’s soggy at home and snow is still lying on hill properties where feeding stock is the priority.
