Well this is about the best Wellington can do for cold snowy weather. The car roof. The last time we had snow on the hills and roads around Wellington was about 20 years ago ... and sadly I am old enough to remember !!
Yesterday was calm, cold and frosty BUT the day was awesome ... sunny and magic for the middle part of the day.
YES we do get snow on the top of the Rimutaka Hil Road .. about an hours drive from the city. This road goes over the southern end of the ....Tararua Ranges ... and some years the road will be closed for a few hours because of the snow.
