    Did a trip to hotham today after watching satellite images and witnessing pouring rain and 4 degree temps in Black Rock (melb) on Thursday morning. Stayed at the snowline in Harrietville on Thursday night where it rained most of the night, a few rumours that heavy wet snow (IMO this could be the definition of rain) was falling in Harrietville around 10pm. Drive up the road showed snowfall down to 800m, according the sat nav, and chains were being fitted to all cars 100m past the meg. Up on the hill it definitely looked like 30cms had fallen, IMO there was 50cms of powder around the Wendix and Beauchamps bowl. (the wind had blown it all off the bridge, stay to the right hand side as you cross) Snow making was happening until about 11:30am. It snowed lightly nearly all day, not really enough to start covering up the tracks though. On the way down at 5pm the snowline had risen to 1100 and chains were taken off halfway between little baldy and the resort entry. It continued to rain lightly until we passed Myrtleford at 6pm. I've got pictures but no idea on how to attach, which forum do i find this in? have fun tomorrow, wish i could've stayed.
