Snow Day!

It usually snows in Christchurch about once a year, and this morning we woke up to this:

Snow is so infrequent here that nobody's really equipped to deal with it, so the city shuts down for the day. I love a bonus long weekend! This is the heaviest snowfall I've ever seen in Christchurch, and the best thing about snow here is that it's usually gone within a day or two, just when the novelty has worn off.

Our plans for the rest of the day involve keeping the fire going, building a snowman (we pretty much have to do that), and taking the dog for a walk. It turns out she really loves snow!


  1. Oh it looks so pretty! Your dog is so hilarious, that video is so cute!

  2. Thanks! It's good to get a video that shows how funny our dog is, she's scared of other people so never does anything in front of them! She's like the dancing frog!
