Wow!


Car windscreen wipers poke through an overnight dump of snow at Mt Hotham in Victoria on August 26, 2010. Around 47 centimetres of fresh snow fell overnight, Hotham's biggest fall since 2003.

I guess it does snow in Australia when it wants to. I need to get me to Victoria and get on some skis!

  1. Na. You need to come to Canada (Calgary) and do some skiing. But you will have to wait till at least November for decent conditions.

    Maybe a trip some where in your future?

    Looks lovely AM, but it doesn't look like Australia.
    I know it snows, but I have never been able to squash that horrible stereo type in my head.
    Living 10 months in Brisbane and Airlie Beach sure didn't help that.

    Cheers

  8. The Adelaide Hills have just about looked like that this week A-M - it's been sooooo icy. Our coldest Winter in 12 years & it feels like it. MOTH's huge wood pile is not what it used to be! This arvo I wore my coat inside for a couple of hours just to keep warm - I felt like a bag-lady.

  13. Oh no! It looks just like my life in Ohio!
    Our summer is saying goodbye already, and we can start to fell the coll breeze every night. We don't need the air-conditioner running anymore, only the windows open to feel cool.
    As much as I love Fall, there's always that feeling that Winter is right around the corner.
    Oh no!!!! Again!!!
