Spring has finally sprung and we are now heading into summer, but not without a few late spring surprises which seems typical of Southland weather!
So it arrived at last, just when I was beginning to think summer wasn’t going to visit us at all in the deep south! Doesn’t a bit of sun and some heat make everything better?
We have had severe weather warnings this week, civil defence coastal alerts, the works. Just reminding those who control the weather… this is meant to be summer?!
New Zealand is very much an outdoors country. The trouble with that is, what to do when outdoors looks yukky! Specially when you live in the back of beyond rural Southland!
