    I didn't believe her at first and asked "are you sure this is today?" She lives in Inverloch. Fun morning for the kids (and big kids) there today!

    Yeah it's a nice town. Good on them.
    It shows the very cold nature of the system.

    My spidey sense tells me we got cold snap in May happening.



    Also, YouTube cams as first implemented by Thredbo are killing it. Best innovation in cams in a decade.

    I equally promoted the Hotham 360 cam on homepage but people don't like it as much as a regular still and abandon the page before it even finishes loading. So I had to switch back.

    May 10 snow is pretty useless (apart from Marketing) IMO. Better give everything a good soak IMO.

    And probably hampers the builders.

    But I do like to see the snow fall after a good long while.

    That's bloody beautiful. After western parts received good falls yesterday, the parched central parts of the state can hopefully get a good drink today. I'm heading up that way tomorrow so it'll be good to see everything damp for a change.

    My leaving for the post office at lunch seems to have precipitated steady rain here in Canberra.

    Has that wintry feel to it. Not seeing much evidence of anything sticking around on the P cams.

    The sun is coming out
    and it looks like you might just be able to do some rockhopping if your brave.


    Watch out for captain keen or whatever his name is?

    As per discussions a few days ago things are too far north for much snow on resorts. Looking good for up high on the Central Tablelands this afternoon. Real fuzzy looking clouds heading over Dubbo at present with short sharp showers. Classic coldies.

    Looks to me that above about 1950 ASL it may stick around for a bit if we get a top up tonight. At the high elevations the cover has built a bit over the past several days.

    Not a lot happening at the moment save for a few light flurries. Virtually windless. A bit of cloud drifting in back towards PV.

    Looking out to Clark



    And up towards Snowy River and the range.
