Sunrise in Dairy Flat from the back deck - and a weather update !

According to the TV news tonight we have just had the coldest October in 25 years, however August was the warmest New Zealand has seen since temperatures were first recorded 155 years ago - with an average temperature almost 2C warmer than usual at a spring-like 10.4C

I always feel better after spending some time here.
