Auckland and Wellington caught unaware..

posted by constance

Just days ago, I read that the city of Wellington and Auckland in New Zealand suddenly had freezing cold temperature after a polar blast. It meant that after half a decade, for the first time, they had not the usual cold temperature but they had also been snowed in, or rather, snow for the first time after so long. Not expecting this, many of them had been stucked at home because they had been unprepared for such a weather… I wonder if their cars had been attached with snow chains because of the thick snow otherwise they won’t be able to drive their vehicles on snowed roads. Schools were shut, roads closed and even power were cut off… oh and how would they be able to keep warm if there was no power to heat their homes… it must have been a situation..
