I had to post a couple of pictures that I took after the snowfall we had last Monday.

We woke up to white stuff everywhere and it continued to fall throughout the day.

The cat hated it and she refused to go out and walk on the snow. DH made a little track for her from her cat door to the garden so she could at least get outside!!

The temperature that day was almost the lowest in the last 100 years. It never got above 1.9 degrees C all day. Would you believe, the next day was 16 degrees!

It is lucky there was someone in the house to shovel the snow off the path and driveway!

Most of the snow was gone by Wednesday afternoon but there were a few snowmen around the place that lasted a few days longer.

It is a shame that the snow didn't get to the skifields so, although they are open, the base is not that deep yet. Hopefully they will get a decent fall soon!

Knew there had been snow in Upper Hutt should have guessed you would have some! Would swap with you it is hot and muggy here. The IMPS would be as fussy as your little lady the excitement of chasing snowflakes soon wanes LOL XOXO Zoe

Lovely pictures, it's strange to think you have snow though when it's 27 c here
