Tuesday 24 April 2012: Oh No Snow!
I just knew something was up this morning. The Bossess had her travel suitcase (I have no idea why it's called a suitcase cos a suit would never fit in it) out on the bed and there was an air of controlled panic as the clock ticked and The Boss read the news (on an iPad NOT a proper newspaper) and waited for it all to come together. Some of my early experiences had a lot to do with newspapers. The Bossess had a couple of cute acronyms for me at this time. One was TTT which stood for Toilet Training Terror. Another was BIB and I am NOT going to tell you what that stood for as certain Nations may be offended. Anyway an iPad would not have done the job at all. Where was I ... Oh yes well I got loaded into the car and off we went to Queenstown to deliver The Bossess to the airport and then off we went blip hunting into the Shotover River area.
That is Coronet Peak in the background and you can see (bigger) the buildings and ski runs on the mountain.
The hope is this will be completely covered in snow by the time the season opens but last year the early snow was all man made. Apparently dogs just can't handle this. I think they can't reach the button thingies.
