The horrible weather this past week

Today is actually good, which I’m very very happy about as it’s been freezing cold and wet/windy here. Though no where near as bad as the weather has been in other parts of New Zealand (including Wellington!). It was so cold here that I was wondering how I ever managed to survive before I got a electric blanket, as it’s been freezing cold at night time.

I ended up taking a couple of photos on Wednesday of this large lump of ice that had formed on the path –

I know that’s unimpressive when compared to what happened in other parts of the country but it was really odd for Auckland. There was a lot more on the lawn but I didn’t want to walk over cold wet lawn to get a good look at them.
