Summer in New Zealand... u gotta be joking!

Here are some pictures I took this morning. It's meant to be 2/3 of the way through summer here.....

at least you can still walk around the house with a shirt and shorts on, no extras needed to keep warm..... but the rain is cold!

P.S. Sorry I had to crop the files to get them within the mximum file size for upload.

looks like there is a lot of rain. Right now i think i would kill to live with you, I'm tired of all this snow... the snow is nice to look at, but then i look at my bike and feel sad I cant ride.

Have a great summer and cherish every mile

Meanwhile, in Brisbane...

Mind you, we're supposed to get storms in Summer, but this is ridiculous. And they say there's more to come.

Let's hope so, we still need the rain. Personally I'd rather have drinking water and no power than power and no drinking water. Particularly if I intend to continue doing long rides out at Canungra in temperatures of 40 C.

I saw patches of snow on Cradle Mountain in Tasmania last month.
