While summer continues to spread its warmth across New Zealand it’s easy to forget that Europe, USA and Canada are all in the grip of fierce winter weather.
Widespread snow has fallen across Britain and Europe along with record breaking weather along America’s north-east.
This photo, sent in by New Zealander Heather Black who now resides in Germany, shows a unique way of keeping your drink cold!
“The temperature dropped suddenly about two weeks ago from around ten degree highs on average to highs in the negatives. The day this photo was taken was minus 8 at noon and it has snowed all day. My German friends tell me it is not normal this time of year in the northern part where we live, which is a couple of ours south of Hamburg. Overnight and today we have 6cms, just measured it for you. On second thoughts I should have taken a pic of a bottle of vodka instead!”.
