The trees are bare and there is snow on the hills - I guess it's winter.
Last night was the coldest so far this winter and we awoke to snow on the hills around us.
And more snow on the hills behind them.
Looking at the Rimutaka Hill Road which crosses the North Island from West to East (and back) and you can see how much fell last night.
More is expected tonight so we will be waking up to a snowy morning. We don't usually get snow down on our paddocks, but it was snowing around us this morning when we feed the cows. Not enough to settle though.
