New Zealanders have shivered in the recent cold snap, having in some places the coldest day of the year.
Those further North have huddled up and moaned miserably about the 4C, or slightly more, while those down south ( they breed very hardy folk there) tell them……..
“ Swallow a concrete pill, harden up, and wear more merino”!!!
In the South Island, Tekapo in the Mackenzie District managed to reach –0.4 Celsius on Saturday!!! This was after an overnight low of –10 C.

Hoar frost near Tekapo in a previous year.
The frost we had seems very mild in comparison. Our front lawn.
I found one more owl languishing in the pile of batik fabrics, he needs to be ironed onto the background, and I need to reply to the rest of the lovely bloggers who left a comment. Ruru is doing well.
Quotation of the day, from Mark Twain, and I wonder where he was when he wrote these words…
“Cold! If the thermometer had been an inch longer
we’d have frozen to death”
