    Stunning day in Thredbo, if a little windy. Cover is extensive but is very slushy by mid afternoon. Going out early and skiing hard till lunch is def best option.

    Back in MEL ( with annual trips to the 604 )
    had a call from one of the other apartment owners at Buller - she is very concerned we are going to loose part of the roof [​IMG]

    Very windy on the Hume - getting buffeted around a bit, but at least I have my chauffeur now ( jnr LTB ) [​IMG]

    Looks like an action packed couple of days coming up at Perisher for Interschools [​IMG]

    I have just driven back from Cooma. Very windy and lots of debris on the road. Garbage day in Berridale today - all the bins are playing dead so if driving watch out for flying rubbish.

    Just wondering when we will get a come and get me call cause all the lifts are on wind hold.

    Be careful on the roads especially if coming over fron Khancoban to Thredbo. Known to be a few trees fall through there in conditions like these.

    Eek! I am in Berridale as well. Just returned inside from retreiving the dog box, for the 2nd time, and removing the timber gate that was self destructing in the wind. Low pressure on the leeward side of the shed has broken the shed door.

    Phoned my son - all lifts at Perisher on wind hold, even the brumby T-bar. They are hiking the hill to work on jumps. Better not be big jumps cause they will get blown away.

    Anyone care to guess at the wind in Sydney this arvo/tonight? I really need to get home and am hoping my 4pm flight isn't told to go back to where it came from.
