Unseasonal weather - or I'm dreaming, it's a white Christmas!?
In New Zealand Christmas is the beginning and peak of the summer holidays, walm sometimes hot weather entices familys to camp, and parents to bathe in the sea. Barbies are the order of the day and picnics a standard Christmas lunch. So... imagine our shock and horror after a week of unseasonally cold and wet weather to look out the french doors and see this...
Am I dreaming, or is it a nightmare? Of a white Christmas!?
PS: The last (unrecorded) snow fall in Auckland was at the end of the recent ice-age, this was hail.
