    Must be odd to have the tree and everything up in 30°c temperatures!

    I don't agree, there was no need to be nasty about it.
    Plus why is it blatently obvious? Yeah it doesn't look like its gonna snow, but that doesnt mean they can't have snow like she asked.

    Its blatantly obvious because its summer in the Southern Hemisphere. How often does it snow in Summer? Exactly - never. You can see its warm because of the pic of Kelly in the pool - which virtually no clothes on and the sun beating down - not the sort of thing you do when its cold (which it has to be to snow).

    Some people have no common sense. :rolleyes:

    What about Icelandic hot spa pools, the sun will shine the person wont wear much AND there will be snow about.

    But you said it never snowed in Summer, which is wrong, and you said that if someone is in a pool and the sun is shinning then it cant snow, which is also wrong.

    Admit you made a serious mistake and we can all move on.

    For the record, it does snow in NZ, just not in Auckland... ;)

    It also hasn't snowed since October - summer season time, we do have several ski places up and down the country.. more details here:

    http://www.snow.co.nz/

    Also, we're a heavily geo-thermal region - there are lots of hot spa's around, just our pool isn't one of them..

    Check out Rotorua:

    Did you know Auckland has more than 17 volcanos.. non-active of course ;)
