Well ladies & gentlemen, it has officially snowed here in Wellington New Zealand for the first time in 16 years.
OK, well you can’t really see it. (Like our car?)
How about now?
Please don’t spontaneously combust due to the awesomeness of the image quality.
This second picture was taken soon after shit hit the fan, so to speak. Let me explain.
I was sitting in my room. I was chillaxin’, some might even go so far to say. And then there was a flash. Then a KABOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMM *rattle rattle rattle* *house starts to shake* *Katy calls an official brown alert*. Then the heavens opened and all sorts of stuff fell from the sky. Now some might say this is hail…which it is. But let’s forget about that and say it’s a mixture of hail and snow just for Katy’s sake, kapeesh?
At this point I had decided it wasn’t a very good idea to go for a walk because let’s face it, I like having a face and being able to feel my toes. Unlike Donkey, I do have toes to feel.
Rewind to earlier in the day when I was at work, there was an awesome snow storm and it was just so incredibly breathtaking. The only time I’ve ever seen it snow was when I was 4 years old and I was still living in England. Other than that I’ve only ever been in the snow while I was snowboarding in the North Island but I’ve never EVER seen it snow in Wellington. Considering that we are pretty much at the latitude as Melbourne, it is pretty unusual. The last time it snowed was actually the winter before we moved here and even then the snow didn’t settle much.
I would like to give a special shout out to my beloved Antarctica for providing us all here is Wellington with this amazing experience. Love you, Ant 😉
Yes, I am a crazy weather nut. Hence why I’m studying meteorology. D’uh.
Have you ever had any crazy weather experiences where you live?
Do you like my Dad’s awesome car? It’s pretty rad.
