Tried to get from Talbingo to Adaminaby on SMH today but turn back after passing 40cm drifts beside road near Sawyers Hill. Probably 15-20cm in Long Plain/Kiandra area but snow plow kept it to 3 or 4cm on road. Nothing like the 80cm at Bo and PV. Car therm on -1.5C most of way. Snow lying to 900m on Talbingo side.

Heavy rain in Mt Beauty, Falls Creek must be getting smashed. I hope the road is clear in the morn. This is going to be epic!

Have had 5mm of rain here in Mt Beauty in the last hour. If this keeps up I could be looking at the "day of the decade"

Season's over ----- no info at all on NSW ABC news or weather about "Blizzard of Oz 3". There goes the Sydney market.
Watched the ABC 24 weather this arvo and they were busy playing up the fire danger for the coming summer, gave particular attention to a current fire warning for the N.T like it was unusual for this time of the year, cold snowy SE winters don't seem to be rated in their news room.

Its pretty awesome cause when I woke up there was hardly anything in the AWS and radar so I thought it was a fizzer but it seems to come out of no where and not on the AWS or radar. You can see it on the sat pics though and some one mentioned shear.

Very difficult to recognise that as Aus. None of that is even leeward of topography or buildings. What a system.
Perisher saying 99 cents as storm total.

Thredbo must be close also as their release at 4pm said 80cm. And going by the cam they must've had at least 10-15 since the lifts closed!

The media calendar says it's spring now. Time to talk about bushfires and the summer Cricket season. I guess it won't rate a mention until an October event happens at Katoomba.

I observe the road to Jindy from Canberra was free of snow and ice tonight . There was constant precipitation from Berridale to Jindy. Winds are still gusting quite strongly, May be an interesting drive up the hill tomorrow.

A mate an I had this run to ourselves, lap after lap this afternoon through 'The Y's' in Falls. It was so windy up top of summit that our tracks were completely covered by fresh snow. When the whiteout lifted a few times, it was all time! What an afternoon of epicness with no crowds. OZ powder at it's finest!
Just came back from a walk on the Accom trail under FX lift, the amount of snow that has built up under the lift line from tonights howling winds is next level. Tomorrow is going to be DEEP! No parking signs in the village are just about buried.

Rained for the whole ride home tonight. About 5C. Bike was much faster than the gridlocked traffic.
Ride from the G to Essendon was freakin' all time hectic as! Basically a liquid snow blizzard, legs cramped up towards the end, bitterly cold in compression shorts! I rode past a dude on the tulla freeway track and said "how good is this??!!!'". He snorted back in disgust lol!!!! So envious of all crew in the mountains right now but so so freakin happy for ya's too ;) ....2017, the little season that could! :cheers:

Laying in bed here in the Upper Yarra it sounds decidedly feral outside. Love it when nature throws up a 'and you think you've seen it all' storm. To be witnessing this in the mountains would be fantastic, very envious of those lucky enough to be up in the midst of it.
