Winter stops, sometimes quickly, sometimes it hangs on. This year it left quickly with warm wet winds stripping the snow base from the lower mountain and despite Turoa declaring Snovember we didn’t head up there at all through October, November.
This is from the last big dump in early October, snow fell as far down as the house, and for the first time I was there for that. This is on the mountain road on the way up to Turoa.
So, we now turn our minds to the warmer months, bike rides, mountain walks, river swimming, golf, BBQ, whatever.
So, a long warm Summer is requested, and time with friends and family – hope you all have the same.
