    Finished sandbagging the house- hopefully the floods won't climb over.

    On Ramshead as of 1300hrs. About 10cm of light dry snow accumulated starting between 1700 and 1800m. Continuing to snow, mixture of flakes and sago. Winds 30-40km/h, visibility variable from 10-100m, as the clouds blew through. Unable to see the Ramshead peaks or ridge at all. Turned back because of wind and visibility.

    Maybe Mercury? As it was redish but I think it looked to small to be Mars.

    Albany Airport (68M ASL) sitting on 6C and showers from WSW. If it shifts S overnight (forecasted), that's snow for Bluff Knoll, IMO.

    Potentially, 3rd/4th occurrence this year if I am not mistaken.
