    We like snow. Where we are now we get none....not even close.
    When we move to the South Island we will see some and may even get a dusting from time to time.
    We are looking to buy a house in Pleasant Point. About 12km inland from Timaru. Ity has a Golf Club and a Steam Train what else do I need...oh and good flat straight roads for the TRUCK!!! and no one lives there. 1 million for whole of South Island. 1.4 million in Auckland alone.
    The wife likes gardens she speaks in tongues when she gets out there, sounds like swahili but it maybe Latin.

    Hahaha!

    It is actually snowing right now.

    I do get sick of the taste of seal meat. ;)

    In another couple of months, the frost will leave the ground then 120 days later it will come back.
    Why do I live here again???

    I landed here with my parents in 1967 (in a 1967 Dodge Monaco) 383 4V.
    A new 'Vette that year was $3749.00 Outrageous!
