looking at the temporary Knoll cafe from the new one
Aside from a holiday to Melbourne at the beginning of May (when it was freeeeeeezing) it just hasn't felt cold. Keep telling myself that autumn is a tease anyway, but things not feeling "right" were confirmed when it was reported to be the warmest May in NZ since records began.... wetter and 2.5'C warmer than normal. Now it's looking like the warmest June on record.
Other indicators of the warmness are:
- constantly overdressing for work since my return from my Australia holiday
- no frost on my car (while it is rare, there might have been at least one occurance by now)
- not even looked at my board, nor got it out for the pre season wax
- only one pre season jaunt to the National Park after an earlier snowfall
The recent cold fronts just didn't happen last weekend, there is another predicted for this weekend, please please please snow.
... the start of something??again?
I know we moan about it every year, and generally the snow/trails are pretty crap (except for the good days)... but to be starting from scratch is pretty worrying. Turoa was supposed to open this weekend but has now moved to July 2nd, same day at Whakapapa. South Island ski fields have all postponed their openings til further notice.
