From a Frosty Start...

 ....comes a wonderful day. Although the temperature gauge didn't get above 5c and the sun failed to melt the frost away.

It must be winter- my little black stickman returns!
We're learning the hard way the tricks of wintering in an RV- we ran out of water late last night and our local tap supply in town has been frozen solid for most of the day. We couldn't get any water until mid afternoon and then only after David gave the tap a knock to dislodge the ice plug. We've been lucky with our house water pipes though, turning off the pump and bleeding the water before we go to bed so they don't freeze. Others parked with us haven't been so lucky, there have been a couple of burst pipes and fittings.

    1. Hoar frosts- one of the reasons I wanted to spend some time in a southern winter Jimu! :) I think we'll have to head into the Maniatoto for that though and after our latest little freeze I'm not too sure we're going to be so keen. And that fisherman was keen but the fish weren't! ;)
