Foggy crisp mornings


Winter has kicked in here and most mornings when I'm sitting in bed with my coffee and laptop it's about 4 degrees celsius, very crisp if it's sunny outside. Basically the colder it is at night the more likely it is that you'll get a fine day. When I was driving back from Kaeo last week I could see the fog hanging over Totara North near the Whangaroa Harbour. The country has been going through a polar blast the last few days, poor Wellington was put into a state of emergency due to their high waves crashing over the main highway and most of Otago and Ruapehu has had major snowdumps. Because we are in the warmer part of New Zealand the lowest we get to at night is about 2-3 degrees celsius, we just put the electric blanket on the bed last night and that will come off in Spring.

I've had some comments left on my other history blog about people having trouble commenting here so I have changed the settings, hope it works, fingers crossed.

I got talking to one of my many cousins about side effects from the Covid vaccine, apparently the Ministry of Health wants to know what people have after getting it. All I had was a sore arm and a slightly metallic taste in my mouth for 48 hours but do you think I could get through the survey on the website? Nope, every time I re-entered my information and got the last page it kept crashing so think I will try another day - frustrating though. 

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

I was asked to participate in a post shot survey, but thus far no email with the survey.


Beautiful shot!

Oh, boy, you´re like my hubby!
He gets up at 04:00 a.m. just to go to his PC and read the news before taking off at 05:00.
I used to get up, brush teeth, blablabla, take off to work! Last minute (04:40).

Wow, 4C is cold (we have but 13, that´s no summer).

Yes. That´s what I´m afraid of, side effects. I always get the full program. And we´re not allowed to travel, I see no one but Ingo.
I´ll wait. And take a look at your other blog :-)

We love that leaning macrocarpa tree in your photo - near the sea is it? Great photo.

I've been watching your artic blasting. I have cousins in Wellington who give me updates too. Really extreme weather.

Meanwhile we are having extremes too, a very tiring heatwave.

I love fog, it's adds a bit of mystery to the scene. I had no side effects from the AstraZeneca vaccine which I thought I would have.

lol, the place seem to be windy. In all directions, even the clouds are low. Love it!

On the spot

I've noticed all around the West Coast these little dairies/shops are dotted in some of the smaller towns. Can't call them a Four Sq...
