    For a period this morning it almost looked like the clouds would clear off. Very little wind for now as well

    Absolutely soaked at Buller. Not that I care too much. Snow is very good and soft. Given the conditions, went for an extended explore in the Chamois Bowl. Terrible at the bottom of Tirol T-Bar. I suggest it will be much better by next Friday or Saturday, when I come up.

    And I spotted @CarveMan from the Southside Chair just before midday, wow he can ski....

    Spoke to my cousin who lives in Albany today and she remarked that she hasn't experienced so many winters with as many strong cold snaps in at least 10 years she reckons.

    Parentals are equally complaining up in the city. But to them 20c is cold...

    Still mild in Melbourne as I type. 16c presently...

    Very nice cover of snow at Buller.
    However could do with a metre plus of low level snow.

    Wind finally starting to build with some decent gusts coming through. Might be a somewhat sleepless night, still have weakened trees from last years storm
