Antarctic Blast delivers Freezing Lows, Rare Snows, and Power Outages ACROSS New Zealand

Central Wellington has experienced a rare snow flurry today, August 9, as a powerful Antarctic blast pummels New Zealand.

Videos posted on Twitter show flakes falling outside the Molly Malones bar on Courtenay Place Monday afternoon:

The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) posted its own footage of snow falling at sea level in the capital:

This isn’t normal, and has happened not once but twice this year, tweets NIWA.

Rare snowfall was also reported in the hills around Wellington with reports of flurries in Karori.

The higher elevations of the South Island, most noticeably its ski fields, have also registered record-challenging accumulations:

Snow dumps up to a whopping 2m (6.6ft) have been reported.

However, for all the thrill of fresh powder, New Zealand’s Mountain Safety Council (MSC) has urged Kiwis not to rush to the slopes, warning that the first two days after a snow dump brings a major risk of avalanches.

“The 24-48hr period after a storm like this one is the most dangerous, and while the temptation is to rush out and get the fresh powder it’s really the time for patience and a cautious approach,” said MSC Chief Executive Mike Daisley.

The MSC issued a ‘High’ avalanche warning for most of the country, including Aoraki/Mt Cook, Two Thumbs, Craigieburns, Nelson Lakes and Tongariro.

The North Island hasn’t been spared the Antarctic blast, with widespread power failures reported after electricity demand hit a record high.

More than 20,000 households are understood to be without power after high winds brought down lines and freezing weather saw usage surge beyond generation capacity.

A Trustpower representative said the outages were affecting Wellington, Kapiti Coast, Palmerston North, Taupo, New Plymouth, Taranaki, Hamilton, Napier, Hastings, Auckland and Whangārei.

Many areas lost power at about 6pm on Monday (local time), reports the nzherald.co.nz.

A voice message on the Trustpower 0800 number says it “currently has no restoration times”.

Wel Network, which supplies power to the Hamilton area, says due to insufficient generation to meet New Zealand’s load demands it had been instructed by national grid operator Transpower “to reduce the amount of load on our network with immediate effect”.

So much for New Zealand being the top rated country to survive a global collapse — one of the key reasons cited in that recent study, conducted by UK researchers, was that NZ was an island nation capable of surviving off its own resources; clearly, this isn’t the case–not least given the ever-intensifying cooling epoch (aka Grand Solar Minimum) we’re now descending into.

Note: I love NZ, I have family there, it just wouldn’t be my number one location to ‘bug out’ during what’s coming–volcanism alone is one major concern.

The big freeze closing roads, knocking out the power, and overwhelming ski fields on Sunday and Monday is forecast to make way for a “fine and frosty start in Christchurch on Tuesday,” according to MetService forecaster Aidan Pyselman.

An additional 40+cm (16+ inches) of snowfall is also expected over the higher elevations as the week progresses.

New Zealand’s powerful Antarctic blast arrived just as NIWA released its latest climate outlook: the long-range forecast calls for “unseasonal warmth” from August until the end of October, with NIWA saying that temperatures are “very likely” to be above average for the majority of regions over the next three months due to increased warm north-westerly winds.

Well, the government agency’s warm-mongering forecast isn’t off to the best of starts now is it…

And, never-mind the catalog of real world observations debunking the AGW scam on a daily basis, it is apparently these placard-brandishing crazies that are the possessors of scientific truths:

Life is hard for logical people right now…

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

    I wonder if the power outages in NZ have anything to do with them closing fossil fuel generation and trying to rely on unreliable wind power.

    1. Jeff

      Excellent point

    Let’s see, India has 1.35 BILLION people and 100 people drowned due to flooding. How many people drown daily in India? From reports that I’ve read, it’s common to find bodies floating in the Ganges River though I have no idea if they drowned or were just tossed in there. So of course mister placard needs a little perspective.

    Life is hard for logical hypersane people right now trying avoid becoming assimilated into the Biodigital Hypersane Lunatics Running the Asylum/Borg AI Hive Mind… as the lives/minds of the illogical fade to black and become as the walking or sleeping dead.


    A step into reality, this is what we are up against!

    MASS PSYCHOSIS – How an Entire Population Becomes MENTALLY ILL


    Besides Jung, are there any modern examples of hypersanity? Those who escaped from Plato’s cave of shadows were reluctant to crawl back down and involve themselves in the affairs of men, and most hypersane people, rather than courting the limelight, might prefer to hide out in their back gardens and work on their walipinis.

    The old dog [Diogenes] used to stroll through Athens in broad daylight brandishing an ignited lamp. Whenever curious people stopped and asked what he was doing, he would reply, “I am just looking for a human being.”

    The youtube video is a perfect example of what I call pushing the pendulum. Pendulums swings in cultural behavior are normal, but those who would manipulate populations do not allow the pendulum to gently and naturally return to center. They get behind the pendulum and cause it swing to the opposite extreme, a position which gives more traction for manipulation and further divides people.

    In this particular instance, the extreme position was demonizing women and burning them as witches. By pushing the pendulum, these women are now depicted as angelic innocents while their executioners are demonized. Without in any way justifying the burning of people at the stake- for ANY reason-the truth is certainly to be found somewhere in between.

    This tactic is used against us to divide people and fire up emotional responses which make people much easier to manipulate. At the present time, it is being used to turn women and men against one another and to create racial tensions.

    Divide and conquer is the oldest and most used of Satan’s tricks. He used it in the Garden of Eden, and it still works today.

        Sassy, at times, even while you’re still fightin’ Satan, you can sound like you’re quite hypersane. Nice to see you’ve come to visit all of us again Clarice. Cheers.

          Actually, I do have a lot in common with Diogenes, except I don’t normally do what he did in the public square in Athens (or was it Corinth.)

            … actually I can go months at a time [literally] out on the ranch especially in this weather… too much information.

    The irresponsible “scientists” pushing the agenda would like us to see that India flood sign then say “aha, ban fossil fuels” rather than “boy, those cosmic rays of the Grand Solar Minimum are sure working”.
    Life is full of “Now I’m supposed to’s”! Best check your responses.
    Humans ordinarily assign wrong cause widely & wildly!
    One must practice asking “What effect could xxx have on xyzz?
    Start close, “Tell me an effect your body is having on your cell phone?”
    “Tell me an effect your chair is having on the floor?” Then expand
    “Tell me an effect sunlight has on the roof of the house?”
    Now perhaps after practice a connection between expanding Antarctic Sea Ice Extent could be determined to assist the revenue of a New Zealand Ski Lodge!

    Thank you for putting those Artic and Antarctic Sea Ice Extent charts
    on the website! Thank You!

    Thank you for mentioning volcanism as a potential threat (and indeed, so much for New Zealand being ranked as a safe haven from so-called “climate change”). There’s a remote but by no means nil chance that there might be a VEI 6-7 eruption in New Zealand (stronger than the 1886 eruption) at any point in the next 20-50 years. Also, a magnitude 8-9+ earthquake somewhere in New Zealand – that would do more extensive damage than the 2011 quakes in Christchurch or the 1931 Hawke’s Bay/Napier quake – isn’t out of the realm of possibility. A devastating tsunami from either a quake or an eruption also isn’t impossible to occur in New Zealand.

    Always nice to encounter someone who asks questions.

    My son just told me there’s a lot of propaganda going around about similations. I asked him what are simulations. He said, whether we are real or not.

    I told him Descartes said,” I think, therefore I am,” so no, most people are not real.

    Welcome to the club of people who really exist, lol!
