Here's a photo of the image I posted of the Cs cloud with halo last week (Sun 29th May) which was on page 2 of the Timaru Herald today.
Yes. After the May floods of last year, they did a lot of work on the river through Geraldine by strengthening the banks of the river for when the river flows like it did today. It has burst it's banks on the odd occasion many years ago with excessive water from it's source up the Waihi gorge area washing out the old footbridge from where today's photo was taken today.
The snow is nowhere near as low as I was expecting. I used a small plastic bottle with nozzle, yellow food colouring in water to write in snow: "Don't eat yellow snow" on the side of the road somewhere in my travels (It's one of my winter traditions going back over 40 years, just once a year). Was Oamaru last night, Benmore, Aorangi Mt Cook, through to your patch & back to Timaru tonight. I think Tasman Glacier has lost a lot of ground from what I recall & will later compare it to photo's taken 22 years ago.
