They headed up this piece, Strange excitement as sun appears above Dunedin. It even quotes tweets that were tweeted less than a half an hour ago. Careful, ODT, you'll be starting to get really up with the online play. (Yes, we do remember the days when we couldn't read the ODT online unless we paid for it.)

People who aren't Dunedin born and bred tend to get a bit sniffy about Dunedin weather, as though for some reason the weather here should behave like it does in other parts of the country. But Dunedinites take the weather as it comes: if it rains, it rains; it the sun shines, it shines; if there's now, well, fair enough, there's snow. No use complaining about the sun not shining when the weather has dictated that the rain will pour. That's just a way to get yourself in a little knot. Don't sweat the small stuff when it comes to the weather, I say.
