    The ruler is back out at Cedarwood, though the view is less than stellar. The camera shifted, the table shifted or both...

    With winter approaching, thought it might be time to install a blanket to keep things warm and clean.

    Thanks, southerly......

    Just re this.
    Its also where media can get out and *measure.

    With no mountain opps on the hill. The depths IMO will be very "fluid".

    If you got Mid station to measure...."40cm at Perisher!"

    Obviously Hotham central being at the top of the hill. Makes it a higher reading.

    Yeah agree, they aren’t exactly rigorous, but they are really the best we have, except for people who are actually up there.
