Spring and freezing in New Zealand~

Yes~ spring is everywhere here....blossoms galore~tiny flowers poking their sweet faces out to see the sun~birdies singing with all their little might in the trees~
Yet~ it's freezing in Wellington ...we get what's called "southerlies" they come right up from the south pole~brrr~
this past week there has been snow in the mountains around us~ lots of heavy rain~extreme wind and cold cold!
We heat with wood plus little heaters in each bedroom/office~ the homes here are not that well insulated~ so you layer your clothes for the cost to heat is outrageous~
I'm hoping it to all pass soon~ we have had such a long cold winter, we are down to our last bit of wood~ (oh no!) Send up a little prayer for warmth please!
Bless and Hugs!
