"Scientists have recently revealed that Australia and New Zealand are best placed to survive a nuclear apocalypse and help reboot collapsed human civilisation."


Quit telling people. They will all want to come here.



And the ones who don't want to come here will adjust their targeting.

Its New Mexico, so its pretty dry, There will not be huge amounts of snow,  Annual precipitation is only 15 inches,  (~40mm) -You can get that overnight in pretty much any part of NZ< 



When recording precipitation that lands as snow, do they record is as mm of snow, or as the equivalent mm of water? Because snow is 10-80% water, so potentially 40mm annual precipitation could be 400mm of snow, if it all fell as snow in extremely cold conditions. 400mm probably wouldn't be enough to stop a determined genuine 4WD, especially if it was all only 10% water.





a 6" snowfall is impassible if the wind blows it into a drift in the wrong place.

Despite that, you didn't describe her as your wife. Do you introduce her as your wife?

Husband and wife sounds better than "the government has determined a date, in the past, where we're considered financially coupled, in particular in regards to new living entities that share our DNA."

Trust me; I've lived in sunny climes and the tiniest amount of snow caused havoc, In those climes, 1 cm of snow is impassible.

There's also the saying "only 4 wheel drives get stuck off-road." The reason is usually only 4 wheel drives are off-road, everyone else stays on-road.
