Going to be a long week... mopping up the floors and hoping the roof doesnt collapse! The roof trusses are already soaked and getting mouldy :(
We are planning changing our classes to try and avoid the snow days, but our planned Open Day here on Thursday might be interesting.
Blue Skies weather forecaster Tony Trewinnard said up to 20 centimetres of snow could fall to sea level in Canterbury on Thursday and Friday, with up to 40cm above 200 metres and up to 60cm above 400m.Oh well - fingers crossed the power stays on.
Rain in Canterbury today is expected to ease this afternoon and tomorrow should be dry.
The ground will not have a chance to dry out before more rain hits the region on Wednesday, turning to snow about dawn on Thursday and with ''frequent showers of periods of snow'' continuing through to Friday night.
''We're not so unused to having snow in Christchurch ... but it usually only lasts for six hours or so,'' Trewinnard said.
''To have it potentially last two days is quite unusual and could potentially become quite hazardous.''
This is a real challenge for the people struggling in leaky homes that are so badly earthquake damaged.
Just heard from friends that they have an inch of water in their house now. Thinking of you both :(
