Unseasonable snow


This is a post to celebrate the rebirth of the CDP Portal. On Friday the mountains were blanketed in an unseasonable fall of snow (given we are now well into Spring and at best we only have a couple of light falls in any winter).  We live below the snow line and didn't go up to have a look because the highway was closed for most of the day.  The next day we were travelling over the mountains to the west I was surprised to find there was quite a lot still lying on the ground.

Spring is such a fickle season.  Freezing cold on Friday and warm and sunny on Saturday.

  3. It was wild and woolly on the coast too, although not quite as cold.

  8. Surprising! It never occurs to me that it can snow in Australia.

    Regarding your comment: No, we don't have pelicans here.
