The Icy Storm - Terrance Best

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 21 June 2013

No matter where you live in New Zealand, the weather has delivered some unpleasant conditions - snow in the South Island, wicked winds in Wellington and freezing temperatures further north. Fierce winds disrupted travel plans all over the Capital.. with trains, ferries and buses cancelled. NIWA is looking for volunteers to measure the snowfall in their communities as part of their Citizen Snow Project. Hunkered down at the DOC Jumbo Hut near Mt Holesworth in the Tararua Forest Park is Terrance Best from the Upper Hutt Tramping Club. The weather has forced him to stay put.
