Winter in Christchurch … tell me how you really feel!

Let’s be honest, we get sick of talking about the weather. It is pretty much a recognised condition. In fact, I’m sure it’s coming up in future episodes of Greys Anatomy or Shortland Street – of course the twist is that the sickness is actually terminal and Dr Warner secretly fathered a mysterious love child who will never get to see its mother. I digress. But despite our inner disdain for talking about the weather (because it seems to imply we have nothing else worthwhile to talk about it) we still continue to discuss it – and I’m going to do some more right now, if I can make it through without hurling. Like Wayne told Garth: “I give you a guaranteed no-hurl policy”. Maybe.
