Snow

When Grant got home from work at 3:30am he took this photo:

When I woke up this morning I saw that we'd had about 6-8 inches of snow in the night.

The boys were very excited to go out and play in it.

Check out the neighbour's washing line:

We went for a walk through town to Ashton Gardens where the boys sledded on a taped-up piece of cardboard - check back later for videos (I even had a go).

Shame, look at his face, he was totally frozen and miserable.

The pond was frozen:

Except for a small patch, which was crowded with ducks:

The most used roads are covered in black slush:

  1. Those photos are amazing! They look like postcards. Some of the ones of trees almost don't seem real, like they were drawn in a graphics program or something.

    As pretty as it is though, I'm sure glad we don't get it here!!!

  3. Gorgeous pictures! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. I also hope that your husband stays safe if he is working in these conditions - we finally got the snow yesterday and I'm always worried when my husband is on duty.

  4. Gorgeous pictures! My husband took some like that in an ice storm once...do you think you'll miss the snow in New Zealand? Or does it snow there (excuse my ignorance)?

  5. Thanks guys.
    I won't miss the snow in New Zealand. It snows mainly on the south island so if we do miss it we'll just go down there.
