I wonder how many Sydneysiders will try and escape lockdown for a cheeky chase…Looking like central tablelands snow tomorrow. And possibly more on a couple of days next week.
Went for a run up to Hassan’s Walls on my lunch break today and got a mix of fine hail and sleet falling on me.

Brilliant!POLICE LAUNCH OPERATION COVID 19 REGIONAL RESPONSE
