The frost this morning is said to have been the keenest felt hero for nearly twenty years. In several parts ef the City ice three-quarters of an inch thick was found, and the steamers’ basin had a thin veneer of ice.
A Kurow settlor informs the ‘ North Otago Times ’ that the frost experienced the last few nights was more severe than had been felt there for many years. The Wa!taki Is very low, and the smaller tributaries are nearly dry, especially in the morning. The weather being so dry makes it almost impossible to work the land. Skating on the ice was indulged in at Outturn this morning, and it is said that a like occurrence has not happened there since early in the sixties.
