    Just went for a walk outside (Buller). I reckon around 15cm fresh - although hard to tell with windblown snow

    Just left the truffle festival gala dinner in Canberra and it was chucking down freezing rain from a westerly direction.

    My Ginini has 9.5mm in the gauge and sitting on -3.4C

    Should make the view to Mt Gingera from Canberra look perdy.

    All seems pretty bang on to me. Falls look to have got a good top up ~20-25cm IMO.

    Yeah they're fair bit more transparent in this day and age so gotta shoot straight with the quantities.
    I observe they go ape shit with the rest of the foam to make up for it .....

    Models did well. As far as moisture went, they always had Vic resorts doing a little better out of this. It's just the way the moisture was tightly centred around the Low.
    Buller did fine as it wasn't really westerly (atleast not for long). Main front delivered in NNW.

    This was one of those cherry on top systems you want in the second half of August just when the base is at peak depth. Nice and cold and 20cms of good quality snow on top of a solid base, it's the perfect time to ski in Australia. Hopefully it's not the last one we'll see like this in 2016.

    Nice morning at Thredbo. 15 cents up top seems about right. Bit of cloud and a slight sw breeze. Coffee consumed, back into it.
