Don’t know what has happened to Spring but we have had a week of rain in our part of the country. Last week an unseasonable dumping of snow closed the Napier-Taupo road and hundred of drivers were forced to abandon their vehicles and were put up in emergency shelters. The snow and freezing temperatures wrecked havoc on farms, with half the new born Spring lambs not surviving the bad weather. Closer to home, the Tararua Ranges were topped with snow. In the Hutt Valley we just got rain, and more rain. Let’s hope the weather clears for the weekend.
Low rain clouds blanket the tops of the hills around Upper Hutt today.
