We are having another day at home... work is shut, the clinics are shut, the students safely at home, as are my children. The roads are not the best place to be... and the heat pump is doing its thing keeping us warm, although the defrost sessions are becoming very necessary!!!
There are things we are meant to do today... but looking at the snow I doubt we will make it. Or more accurately, I am not sure I feel they are worth risking the trip, the possible accidents and panel beating and injury... even as I write, the sky is darkening again and fresh snow is falling. There is more to come.
Poppy alternates between exploring the snow, which is still dry and powdery and easy to shovel, and sleeping contentedly on a faux fur rug, a lap, or in front of the gas flames. A great life surrounded by a captive audience of all the people she loves.
Hope you are all coping around the rest of New Zealand.... Auckland even had some snow yesterday. They are getting strong winds and damage so not escaping the storm...
The only thing we worry about now in Christchurch is the power cuts.... or another good earthquake!
