Roughly this time two years ago (16th August approx.) Stokes Valley and the rest of Wellington suffered what became known as ‘Snowmageddon’, you can see Mum’s Flickr album of pictures here. Now, many of you may think, snow * shrug * no big deal, what you won’t know is that the area has not seen snow for 30 years! Imagine the impact of this snow on younger members of the community, seeing snow for the first time ever!
Dad had driven to the station that day, and mum had to text him to say, drive carefully, we are snow bound! Did we cats like it? No we didn’t! and we could not wait for it to disappear MOL! You can check the local online newspaper for coverage of our first snow in decades here.
