    Cardrona today. They got 30cms overnight and it's snowed up there all day.

    Certainly not unusual to get snow in Jan, but that's certainly one of the bigger dumps I can remember.

    Cardrona reckoned there was maybe 50 cms at the top and the biggest January snowfall they've had. There's another storm front on the way tomorrow night though not as cold as the last one.

    Can you get them to send some of the cold weather over Australia way?
