Like most kiwis we like to devote a certain amount of the day to talk about the weather. Yesterday was mums last staycation day. In the morning the sun was shining, it was blue skies and around about 20 degree c. Mum went out and ate some lunch and had a wander round the city, but a blister from new shoes forced her to go to the supermarket and head home by 3pm.
As she arrived home she noticed the grey skies on the horizon. Within 10 minutes they were covering the whole skies and freezing rain. By 7pm the temperature had dropped to 8deg and by bedtime it was 6deg, and remember we are meant to be mid summer and complaining about the hots. Not having the heater on and mum took this picture of me snuggling between her knees to keep myself warm.
So mum was texting her family who are in Adelaide Australia, where it was a tropical 36 degree. Somewhere in the middle would be nice.
So we are hoping our weather settles soon before the summer is over.
