A winter blast from Antarctica


Sleet, hail, rail, wind, and snow. 'Tis rather chilly in Welly.

The hills around town had a dusting in the last couple of days - this is Mt Kaukau across the valley to the west this morning.

Definitely a day for the possum hat!

Got to work and kept it on while I warmed up with coffee at the standing desk. Not exactly a toasty office in the old school. Note the summer hat hanging on a bit of driftwood in the background - my summer instalation. She will return will summer.


  1. Great hat! Are they possum buns over the ears? Jude

  2. Some part of a skinned possum's backside - New Zealand's little speed bumps!
