Yes indeed. The phenomenon known as Global Warming has hit Wanganui with a vengeance this morning. At 9am, the temperature is a balmy, sub-tropic 2*C, after having sunk to -2* overnight. Bear in mind that the reading is taken at the automatic weather station at Wanganui Airport, less than 200 metres from where the Tasman Sea laps onto South Beach. The temperature is the valleys of Aramoho and Wanganui East will have been considerably colder!
Yes indeed dear readers. As I look at the blue tips of my fingers struggling to exert pressure on my keyboard, I think I'm in danger of becoming a convert to Global Warming - not even eh!
