and KEPT on snowing!
i've lived in wellington since december 1983 and it's snowed ONLY ONCE
i remember this ONLY ONCE, because when we arrived back to nz after living in atlanta for a year and a half, miss 21 (who was 6 at the time), said "mum, does it ever snow in wellington?" (because we had experienced some extreme weather in hotlanta, ie snow where snow is a highly unusual occurrence) -
and i said "NO, it NEVER snows in wellington"
fast forward to august 14, 2011
miss 13 and i were at a learn to row meeting at their school when it started to snow
and MAN did it snow.
it was the most treacherous 1.9 MILE drive home of MY LIFE
it was not helped by the barrage of questions from miss 13
"does snow melt on the road"
"will school be on tomorrow?"
"do dogs like snow?"
...you get the idea...
at one point i just said 'please stop talking', and it was obviously in that serious 'mother tone' that means please stop talking. actually.
me and my poor little 1.3cc car barely made it home
it simply gave up at the bottom of the drive
once home safely, there was nothing to do but photograph this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and simply enjoy the beauty of the situation
our driveway - before i completely destroyed it trying to ascend it in the car!
they be boobs, not stumpy arms
my daughters clearly have their mother's sense of humour!
