Snow is beautiful. And fun. It does get messy, and it keeps you indoors more than you’d like, but those are trifles compared to the six foot high piles of white-or-grey frozen stuff all over the streets. Quite something for us Kiwis.
Anyway, we thought we’d show you some recent photos. Remember, you can click any photo to see a bigger version.

What our footpath and street look like now. Those piles are about 1.5 m (5 ft) — it’s gotta go somewhere when people shovel it!
Walking on the footpath can be interesting just after a snow. People are supposed to shovel in front of their own apartments, but some folks don’t get around to it:

The footpath is pretty well shovelled by now. Yep, those piles really are 1.5 times as tall as her:
Snow in the tree branches sure looks lovely. This recent snowfall was particularly nice, as there was very little wind:
That’s all, folks!
