    Note to mods: I can't add a prefix for observations. Moderator only?

    Anyway, howling gale blowing here at Lake Crackenback, 1100m ASL near Bullocks Flat and Thredbo. Vast majority of Thredbo lifts on wind hold today.

    I observe I don't see any trout for dinner. :p

    (Yes it's a weather related obs as you only consistently catch them with a rising barometer just after a cold front has passed!)

    Howling winds ripping up the Moonbah Valley. We’ve not had a decent wind storm for a bit. Will be cool if the forecasted snow arrives with the winds. Drifts will build on the leeward slopes, more wind packed surface and the current off piste cover will change quickly.... here’s hoping!

    I know eh. Totally different up here, wind and moisture seems to come across the north end of the lake unaffected by Jindy micro climate.
