Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th August 2011, I will not forget these two dates in a hurry
because for as long as I can remember I have never seen it snow here in Renwick or Blenheim.
Sure we have had the odd flurry, but on Monday afternoon it started to snow and although it
didnÂ Â settle on the ground it continued off and on for over an hour.Â It got bitterly cold
overnight and on Tuesday morning we had a true Alpine Village setting in Blenheim and the
surrounding hills were very picturesque.Â Wednesday morning was similar but the snow didnt
come down as low, but the hills surrounding Blenheim and Renwick looked amazing.Â Roll on
