Early snow falls

After a weekend from heaven weather wise, [noting the wild snow storms of late last week[, today we're back into the "real" winter weather.

Sat. saw me instucting again [like in the old days] with Stu and Heidie on a local NZ Mountain Safety Outdoor First Aid course. I love these as they're geared to the concept of assistance being 24 hrs. away, and we have lots of scenarios. It was at our usual favourite venue - the Wanaka Yacht Club rooms down by the lake edge. Although cold with snow on the ground, the sun was out and the views magnificent.

On Sunday I helped my friend Pam, who is house sitting with her son up on the lower slopes of the Criffel Range, get out to her home in Hawea to check the routes there and back re. snow, work access for the coming week, and check the cat. She has quite a sporty car, the design of which excludes the fitting of chains, whereas I have the other extreme, my Land Cruiser Series 70 camper truck. We did a round trip through Hawea Flat, and it was just lovely with few problems presented by the ice and snow except for her home street. We then went for a long walk around the lake edge with the golden lab. she is looking after with the house.

On this note I'll close here as it looks like my Monday work load is going to be quite full.
