Snow from a once-in-a-lifetime Antarctic blast reached
In the past, the northern parts of New Zealand are called the "winterless" north because…well, there’s no such thing as winter there. Not anymore as much of the country is now in the grip of a big freeze.
The "once in a lifetime" blizzards is giving parts of New Zealand their first snowfall in 80 years and is causing major disruption to the country. We are not talking about nice, gentle snowfall here but heavy wintry condition in a country not used to having any snowfall at all.
As they say; pictures tell a thousand words.
