Mountains

As you can see the polar blast has delivered, with our mountains getting a good coverage of snow. Even the Port Hills had a dusting of snow on them today. As you can imagine, it’s cold, too cold for April in my opinion. We still have six weeks left of Autumn, so winter can just go away for now, I like my sunny Autumnal days too much and am not ready for hat, gloves, scarf and thermals!

Lots of snow on those mountains! We are having a cold snap this week – after having a very warm weekend (it got to 25 degrees on Sunday). So with the cold comes a dump of snow on the mountain ranges. It’s funny because just last week I looked at these mountains and realised there was little snow left on them (well from what I can see from home). And I was a little sad. Then the cold came, and I decided I was over cold weather and bring on summer! Still, those mountains are lovely!
