    Today's observation. Spinning up nicely. Pushing Northwards nicely, up on the high. Definitely getting some hook.

    I am pleased with progress. :)

    BOM has issued a graziers alert for Western and Northern Vic but not the North East. Hope it does get to the North East.

    Yesterday's fog has gone at Falls.
    Instead, the wind has picked up and the dark and ominous cloud is coming up the valley

    Started snowing lightly at Perisher at 9.10. Continued lightly at Blue Cow & Guthega until 11 with a mix of sago & flakes. Snow increasing from 11 @ BCow with temps of 0 @ Terminal Quad. Wet snow at Eyre cafe at 12.33 & temp of 2 - not settling except on trees - though that may be left from last fall. Temps must drop soon
