Heavy snow falls in Waiouru.
There is nothing like a good snowfall in the winter. It’s not something every Aucklander gets to see but as part of “Exercise Phoenix Shield”, soldiers from the newly formed 38 Combat Service Support Company layered up and braved the elements. Amped and ready to go the reccie party came back with news visibility had dropped below safe minimums for the tasking and we were stood down. The weather was getting progressively worse so it was decided in the interest of safety 38CSSCoy North Platoon pers should pull the pin and depart for home.
