Winter Wonderland

We have lived in Palmerston North for almost 20 years, and this is the first I have seen snow falling in the Manawatu. I had to drive home with the car like this after 1.5 hours of snowfall:
And as fast as I was scraping off the snow so that I could put the car in the garage, the snow drifts were forming again!
The hens were still sheltering under the hedge (where I fed them - they will probably be better off there for the night, than trying to get back to their house), and the lambs were trying to find something to eat:

According to the weather forecast, the next few hours are not going to get better.
Pumpkin soup for tea I think!

Great Photo's. I am pleased the snow came before the littlies had to be in their beds tonight. I think most of them missed it last night . Now thats enough fun in the snow now we could do with some SUN SHINE!!!!!!!

Someone made a huge snowman up on Summerhill, it even had a carrot nose - pity I didn't have the camera with me! All gone now with the rain :-(
