Thank Lordy for that!

 

I'd feel a right prick now if you said you were only going for a fortnight!

 

When did you emigrate Ian?

 

Moved out Feb 1998. Took a while to get residency, about 7 years I think. Immigration made it really difficult so I hired a lawyer who made it really easy (but expensive). We got citizenship about 2 years ago which was relatively simple. Never had an urge to go back to ol blighty until I saw how much snow you fellas had this year. Sometimes the 35 degree christmas days get a bit too much and you would like a white christmas. Then I get over it and go back my BBQ lunch :thumbup:

It's such a hard life. I mean, I live within 30 - 40 minutes drive of the ski fields, 5 minutes from thermal hot pools, 5 minutes from the lake edge. Oh the hardship, THE TORMENT! Jealous yet? :001_tt2:

Rub it in you barstewards.

 

Big Lukey is getting married, probably next year, so that should give me a chance to abuse, sorry, explore, your country.

 

Can't wait!

any snow yet ian?

 

Well most of it had gone again after mild conditions and lots of rain but yesterday and last night it hosed down and this morning we have had heavy rain and showers and the wind is pretty fresh in Turangi and Taupo so I'd reckon there's at least 5 to 10cm of fresh powder up there. I'm heading past tomorrow on the way back from work so I'll have a nosey but the forecast is for more of the same over the weekend so I'd break out that snow board.
