The Fourth Day of Summer

It really is snowing!!!
 OK I cheated a bit. I took this photo on the way up to Mt. Wellington today, but it really is cold and it doesn't look like we'll be celebrating Christmas in shorts and bathers this year. We'll be at one with our friends in Europe and the USA, huddled around fires and wearing mufflers and coats, and who knows? Maybe even throwing the odd snowball around like we did today.

Still a bit of snow around on the top
 Wonder how things  are in Russia this year. It was 40oC every single day last year well into September.  Did the earth slip on its axis while we weren't looking? Oh well, looks like I won't have to travel that far for a bit of Zhivago - like scenery.
