    Dumping and bitterly cold.

    Mountain has cleared out, and won't get busy again this winter. I'm considering staying up tonight.

    Snowing again at Buller, was sunny 5 mins ago. Tas rain shadow effect and if it goes easterly we are typically too far west.

    Bears were going to try some roller blading ....but the sunny patches seen thro the window are deceiving....outside it's still cold in Melb.

    BOM obs show that its been around ten deg C all day and it cannot rise above this even with some suns rays.

    Still gusterly winds and squalling with some light rain.....so back inside we go sitting by heater.
    Dark clouds rollling by with intermittent sun shine!!

    We got stuck in the traffic just before thredbo this morning, the accident was cleared by about 10am. Someone else had slid off into the barrier just below dhg too. We got a quick skin in up above the treeline from dhg and had a lot of fun coming down. Probably 5-10cm on the ground. A nice way to wrap up the weekend

    I observe a lot of kuckleheads filling the streets of Bondi thinking they're the next McGreggor...:cry:
    The overhead grey skies don't help with the vibe.

    -7 already at Hotham and Thredbo. A seriously cold night coming up for anyone camping out. Think I will stay home with the fire and a bloody good vintage port.
