Well, as we kept telling people in Europe when we were there, it usually snows at least once in Christchurch before summer kicks in, but usually in Spring – and today’s the day – and what a day it is. Normally it snows a little – a wee dusting to remind us that winter’s still about – but this one is thumping down and piling in drifts, falling off buildings and cars. Could be one to rival ’92 maybe.
Here at the library the managers are running around trying to sort out what’s open, what’s closed. News just came through – all libraries are closing from 11. The photo here is from about an hour ago.
Now I just have to work out how to get home.
