Roughly this time two years ago (16th August approx.) Stokes Valley and the rest of Wellington suffered what became known as ‘Snowmageddon’.

Snowmageddon 2011Mum and I in the back garden

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!

    Wow! My human is still waiting for the first L.A. snowstorm in her lifetime – last century, I think there was snow here two or three times, but the last time was in the early 1950s.

    Wow, snow for the first time in 30 years is something else! It doesn’t snow here, but if it suddenly did, nobody would know how to drive in it because they didn’t have practice, and it would be a big mess. We hope your snow melts soon.
