Recap: Snow settles across the country, black ice warnings, hundreds without power
The polar blast continued to cause havoc on the roads in many areas on Monday, while hundreds remain without power after Taupo and inland Hawke's Bay were hit by a blizzard.
Power outages remain widespread between Taupo and Napier after snow caused the worst damage to the power network in a decade.
Hundreds of power poles were brought down and it could take more than a week for some rural areas to have power restored.
