Yesterday it snowed in Taupo and all around the house where we live.
The image to the left is the view from my bedroom window at about 9am.
Nothing unusual in many parts of the world but a rarity where we live.
We had a hail storm at about 1pm yesterday which left much of our property covered in white.
Here, on the south side of the house today we still have ice as a remnant from yesterday.
Today dawned an absolutely beautiful day, crisp and clear.
I tried to capture the fantastic snow covering on the mountains to the south of us but my camera is not quite up to the mark.
Snow across the country is not finished yet so we will wait and see if there is more to come.
