When I peeked out of the curtains this morning and saw the snow I was ready for the day in less than 30 seconds. I love, love, love, snow on the beach and I had to go and see it. It is just such an odd juxtaposition.
The snow kept falling in enormous flakes but Mr Pigalina needed to head to his work to retrieve his laptop to carry on with a project. He headed in in my car, vowing to return shortly, and then decided to stay there.
I have been forced stay at home, by the fire, watching “Diana, Her True Story”.
This was the view out of the window at work after most of us had ventured in. We then spent the day wistfully looking out of the window hoping to go home and build snowmen (and sing the song from Frozen). By the end of the day it was brown slush and any hopes of a snow day tomorrow have turned into dreams of an ice day.
Yesterday a storm whizzed through and we had a two hour power cut. Luckily the power came on just as the candles had started to melt the bucket I had put them in. Other parts of the neighborhood only had power restored this evening so we got off lightly.
Tonight we had tea at Mr Pigalina’s parent’s for our niece’s 16th birthday. Tobias was glad he had his coat on as it started snowing while we were there. Tobias is pictured here with Mr Pigalina’s Dad, enjoying some cuddle time.
Today we were supposed to be flying to Auckland to see Lady Gaga. Snow over the last two days caused many cancelled flights and lots of disappointed Little Monsters at Dunedin and Christchurch airports.
