How about that global warming, huh?

Global Warming is delivering up snow to the South Island at the moment:

Summer’s latest dose of bad weather has brought snow to the South Island.

Snow was falling and settling on Porters Pass this afternoon, and hail was falling at Arthur’s Pass, WeatherWatch.co.nz said.

MetService this morning issued a severe thunderstorm watch, which said there was a moderate risk of storms from north Canterbury to Wairarapa this afternoon.

It would bring localised rain and hail, especially in Marlborough where a few of the thunderstorms could be severe and could bring large hail of at least 20 millimetres in diameter.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
