  1. I mean, being that August in New Zealand is like February in the Northern Hemisphere, why is snow such a strange sight? Is it cause it just doesn’t snow in New Zealand?

    I just assumed it did since it’s about as far south of the Equator as Minnesota is north of the Equator and Minnesota gets a bit of snow.

    • I don’t think it snows often. I read somewhere that this was a 7 inch snowfall, which was a record snowfall for them.

    • I’m from New Zealand. Snow is not a strange sight in New Zealand in August in the South Island, but this snow was all over the entire country – North and South Island. It was also down to sea level, and it usually only snows to about 400m above sea level. I walked along this street on that day – most people who live in Wellington have never seen snow as it never snows in the cities. It was truely a unique experience for us – everyone forgetting about their boring office work and going outside to have fun and smile at everyone.

  2. Much as I hate the stuff, it does look kind of pleasant. I might not object to some snow here in South Florida today, as it started out with a heat index of about 90, at dawn.
