#1524 ... Brrrrrr

Winter has really arrived ... the rain was flopping on the windscreen ... must be sleet. The South Island had many roads closed. Snow in parts of the North Island. Wind chill factor in Wellington this morning -3 degrees C.

Thousands of Kiwis woke up this morning to a sight seldom seen in many parts of Aotearoa - a thick layer of snow blanketing backyards, coating cars, settling on sheep and blocking roads and driveways.

While some will label the snowfall the "worst'' to hit New Zealand in 15 years, we're looking on the bright side. There's a lot of good things about the wet, powdery white stuff - even if you're not a confirmed snow-bunny.

Take a look at the Christchurch Daily Photo
