    I mentioned several weeks ago that 2017 was going to be like 1989. I might've been onto something...

    My year of birth.
    From memory, 1979 wasn't too great...

    I don't think we'll quite crack the 1m mark. I'll go 98cm.

    And @Miffy is this week's winner of the 'Jellybeans in the jar' competition, bang smack on with 88cm (well, according to Perisher who claim Spencer's Creek depth to be at this level - Snowy Hydro must tell them before updating their website for the rest of us). ;)

    Still fairly grim for Late July IMO and with not much coming in the next week either :(

    You'd want to pray for a big August at this rate.....

    IMO unlikely however stranger things have happened before look at 1992 or 1984 season historical snowfall for example

    WTF is with that Snowy Hydro website? Can you even get the data anymore. I think Rhonda has been tweaking it.

    The way things were looking set up wise in May i said if anyone was curious as to what 1992 would have been like without the volcano , then this winter could well provide the answer. IMO we are travelling better than considerably better than 92 to this point.

    With snow showers forecast for the next few days and having had 10cm overnight I'd say strong chance for > 100cm SC depth reading this week :)

    @loweee walking across the creek at Perisher today I thought it looks like a depth of 130, but we just haven't had that much new snow since last weeks reading.
    'Tis an interesting season 2017, seems to be filling in really well for the amount of snowfall we've received!
    My guess for this week will be 118 ;)

    Last weeks reading was lower than anticipated because it blew from the SW for a few days so would have not been favourable for the Spencers Creek slope (which faces south east). With north westerlies over the last few days the depth may surprise.
