Climate changing right now …

Spring Snow on the Orongorongo Range

The snowline continues on, behind Mt Victoria

Finally, after days of rain, and more slipping on the ridge end at the end of my road, I went for a walk in the cold sunshine along to the lookout in Kelburn, next to the Cable Car. What a beaut view!
All that snow, in September – well, no wonder it was so cold when I got up this morning!

Anyone who wants to tell me climate change isn’t happening can just trot out and look at that lovely snow, and explain to me why Wellington, a once-in-twenty-years snow zone in Winter, is now getting spring snow. That used to be the exclusive right of ski-fields like the Remarkables, where I have skied on Labour Weekend. [ some years ago now, but it was quite commonly advertised. ]

Perhaps there’s an opening for some enterprising person to switch opinions, and develop a patch of the Wainui hills into a future new seasonal ski field?

Bored with a record shop.

Ever wondered what goes on when the proprietor of secondhand record shop at the butt end of the world chucks in the towel and goes back to having a life??
